The article describes the restoration of the Delaware Aqueduct which was found to be in critical condition in 1979. This was done in such a way as not to compromise the structure or its status as an historical landmark. The engineering challenge was to adapt a structure that had been designed to carry a constant, uniform, and static load of canal water to one that could acommodate H10 vehicular traffic with concentrated, moving live loads with impact. The engineering solution and the construction details are described.
