The Stockheughter Covered Bridge is currently(as of 5/15) undergoing rehabilitation after years of talk of doing this. Most of the old siding has been removed as well as the floor, and a portal post has been replaced and there is more to do. It also appears the turns at both ends of the bridge which have been so sharp are being rounded. Its great something is finally being done to this bridge.
