Last summer I was hired by Frazier Associates in Staunton to prepare some as found documentation of the Bob White Covered Bridge in Patrick County, Virginia for preservation work to be conducted through VDOT. I learned yesterday that bridge was washed away in flash flooding! This is horrible to learn; now only seven covered bridges remain statewide, I believe.

I am therefore VERY glad to have a couple hundred photos of the structure suitable for photogrammetric rectification. I did prepare some simple drawings and orthophotography, small versions of which I’ll share here. I’ll also share some video snap shots of the point cloud I created.

I hope to get in touch with anyone who might be interested in rebuilding. If you stumble upon this page and share my interest please contact me!
