If you are coming from Abner creek Rd side of bridge on Mayfield you can see the old right of way this is now a drive way for house close to bridge. what I saw inside the bridge didn't look too old but the wooden floor looked ax cut and very old I still believe its an old crossing before the 1984 bridge was built
It might also be the remains of something that someone thought worth preserving, at least visually. There's a story here, probably more than someone put some aged lumber over steel stringers.
There's probably someone local who could explain.
Not historic, not a truss, I don't even consider it a covered bridge.
It's a decoration dragging down the stringers holding it up.
I need to go back and take more pictures. I couldn't believe I found this bridge, only records I could find say it was build in 1991 and no way that's possible after seeing it up close.
they recently replaced the current bridge that was built in 1984 with a new one so the area around it was cleaned out reveling the covered bridge.
It appears to be a steel stringer with a housing over it, perhaps to protect the wooden floor. The outriggers suggest there may once have been a truss of some sort. Any ideas?
