This paper describes some of the observations made by the author on a 12 000 mile round tour to the USA and Canada in October/November 1994 as a recipient of one of the two 1994 Rowen Travel Awards administered by the Educational Trust of the Institution of Structural Engineers. A large amount of information was gathered during visits to 20 organisations concerned with steel and composite bridges in the still pre-eminent steel-producing areas of the northeastern USA and Ontario. Various aspects of bridge engineering culture and practice in that region are described.
