Okay, I found out what exactly is going on with the so-called rehabilitation of this bridge (so-called because according to this source, this isn't the first time it's been delayed).

Made a site visit today. Something is holding up the rehabilitation of this bridge. The structure is still sitting on the Nudd Road approach and is closed to all traffic. The entire deck is mostly missing, and a pile of wood north of where the bridge is sitting looks to be the parts of the deck. Cinderblocks have been placed under the bridge to raise it up, so you can walk under/"inside" the bridge. Covered Bridge Road is now gated before the bridge approach, with multiple "No Parking Police Order" signs. I'm not sure what exactly is going on here, but I'll try to upload my photos later.

Of course, since it's a covered bridge, the word "renovations" is appropriate...if it were a metal truss bridge, the word "replacement" would be used instead.
