As of early May 2013, the bridge is once again closed for the second time in a few years an 18 wheeler truck, one foot higher than the bridge had for clearance has crashed into it causing extensive damage. The last time this happened it took several years to re-open. Apparently, modern day truck drivers follow their GPS units and cant read bridge clearance signs. I dont think our town has the money needed to fix this this time unless insurance might cover the damage.
I use to walk across the Mt Orne Covered Bridge when i was in high school and drove across it several times when i lived in lunenburg Vermont to go to lancaster NH..Very beautiful bridge at one time.
