15 April 2011 Academia/Pomeroy Bridge

This 1902 beauty is the longest remaining covered bridge in Pennsylvania. It's out of the way and takes a little driving to visit, but it's a grand old bridge. The bridge is 270 feet long. It is nestled away from traffic on a quiet road with a picnic table nearby.

This is the first covered bridge I recall with thin decking planks perpendicular to the travel direction. It was an interesting feature that an engineering geek couldn't pass by. ;-)
