Rebuilding of the Wimer Covered Bridge

wimer covered bridge

Originally built in 1892, the Wimer Covered Bridge was replaced in 1927. That one collapsed July 6, 2003. Investigators determined the bridge failed because of rotting timbers and from vehicles crossing the span that exceeded the six-ton limit.

The new $1.6 million bridge has the look of the original, but with some modern improvements. It is designed to support 10-ton loads, with occasional use by emergency vehicles in excess of that amount.

    Much dissapointed that such alircte and the picture won the prize! I felt ‘no connection’ with her words, especially the picture ‘regarding’ the UK… I used to stay in the UK for a year. Honestly speaking, to use many names of people or traveling spotlights related to the UK like this way DOES NOT mean anything to people who are not familiar with Britain’s insights as well as those having been there and have memories to this country.
