Description 

Another example of a Multiple Kingpost bridge built by the Kennedy's. They used the Burr Truss almost exclusivly, but occasionally left the arches off of shorter spans. This bridge is listed as being 94 feet long but to me it appears much shorter.

Logan Creek Covered Bridge
Posted March 30, 2019, by Tom Hoffman

Logan Creek Covered Bridge was actually removed and not replaced due to construction of I-74. It was next to Whitewater River confluence. Sometimes after crossing the river on the interstate west the abutments are visible. Wonder how this survived the 1913 flood.
