Covered Bridge Repairs
Hurricane Irene left her mark on Vermont when she left a trail of total destruction in August 2011.
Many historic covered bridges vanished in the rivers they used to watch over.
Recently I traveled to Woodstock Vermont and have seen one bridge that was torn apart, but still left
standing, being stripped and repaired. It has been going on for over a year, so far.
This bridge is between Queechee and Woodstock.
There is nowhere to pull over so I did a slow drive by.
Click on the photos to see them larger and view the details.
Its a long, arduous process to repair these old bridges in a way that will allow them to stand strong for another 200+ years.
I will continue to photograph this particular bridge every time I head that way over Route 4.
