Project Details
About this project
This 107-foot-long bridge crosses the Mill Creek in Jefferson Township. Just like most covered bridges, it is covered so that the wood doesn't rot and break while it is in use. It is one of 16 covered bridges that you can drive on in the county.
Who benefits from this project, and how?
Everyone in the area benefits from this because they can get across the Mill Creek in Jefferson Township with their car or on foot. It also provides shelter for any wildlife that enters by having the roof on top. birds could possibly make a nest under the roof.
