Suspension tiers and cables were added by KY Highway Department in 1951. This bridge has been listed as the world's only covered suspension bridge, but this classification is incorrect. The suspension elements were integrated into the Howe truss but was an independent structure. A more correct classification is a covered bridge with added suspension elements.

This is very interesting. I'm new to the area and travel 11 up to Ohio for work often. I have seen the remnants of the bridge (kind of looks like a small shop) now I know exactly what it is. Thanks for puting the pictures up and sharing the info.
