They take good care of them Brian! I'm sure they'll have it open asap.

This bridge is my wife's and my favorite bridge. We visit every year and has the most beautiful setting of all the covered bridges. We were disappointed to find the bridge closed and under repair today.

We couldn't find any articles about its future. Hopefully it will be done very soon.
