Tannehill Covered Bridge
Posted September 25, 2013, by Tom Hoffman (tehoffm [at] hotmail [dot] com)

I have been to the sight of this bridge. The UCEB that replaced the covered bridge is becoming dilapidated. Also the same thing is happening to the UCEB that replaced the Lowell Covered bridge down to the south. I'm sick of historic metal truss bridges like in Ohio and elsewhere being demolished and replaced with modern covered bridges. UCEBs build between 1955 and 1990 becoming dilapidated are the ones to replace with modern covered bridges.
