Pictures of the old covered bridge, you can't make them larger due to the fact that you have to the pay the historical society for access to them.
It would be neat to see pics of the even OLDER bridge on those low pilons.
I believe these pilings are from the Newberry Covered bridge. This was one of the Kennedy's far from Rush County bridges. Also on of their only three span covered bridges ever constructed. Unlike most of the Kennedy bridges, Newberry had a Howe Truss rather than Burr Arch. I remember the George Gould Indiana covered bridge booklet's guide section indicating the covered bridge was taken out around 1940 like when the metal truss was built. Man it would be huge nonsense to have both this and the overflow bridges taken out. Its neat to have two massive through trusses close together. Two lanes is enough for 3-4000 vehicles a day. Plus the bridges are not below the standard width of 24 feet.
There are still pilings in the river from an old bridge just to the east of this one.
I drove this bridge today. It's been converted to one-lane traffic. There are stoplights on the bridge at either end controlling traffic.
