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.


  1. These covered bridges are so neat. When we lived back in Philly we would always walk through the older parks and take pictures -- Valley Forge and then there are some wonderful ones in Brandywine Valley.

    Thank you for linking to Raising Imperfection.

  2. There are quite a few historic covered bridges in Oregon and you can even download a driving tour map for them. They are cool.

  3. i know that bridge! i did not know it was damaged but i am happy to hear it is being repaired.

  4. I'm glad they are repairing it. It will be interesting to watch the progress through your pictures. :)
