Bement Covered Bridge
Posted March 13, 2011, by Will (Bridgewright [at] gmail [dot] com)

The Bement has recently temporarily been closed to traffic - http://tiny.cc/y5icu

I went over yesterday with an associate (High water demanded we return to his place for his canoe) from the next town over for an inspection, and to offer a professional opinion.

Snapped some shots and thought I'd share, in addition to these there are five new images on the Bement's page
