Middle Road Covered Bridge

Nice to see it preserved, but it's a shame they had to add those concrete piers. It would have be nice to at least put a stone facade on them, if not build them out of stone to match the abutments.

The bridge has changed a bit since 1982! This photo is from 9/30/07. I think it was rehabbed in 1984. Snowy shots taken by Rob Trainor, 2/4/07
