Comments:
This is the youngest historic Kingpost covered bridge on a public highway in Vermont. The Kingposts only come part of the way up the bridges sides. Further, unlike most of Vermont's other Kingpost structures, it actually has wooden Kingposts not augmented, replaced by or constructed with iron rods. In 1971 five steel I-beam stringers were added, among other repairs, during a major renovation. In 1978 the bridge had its siding repaired and received a new coat of barn red paint. Its original granite abutments were faced with concrete in 1990. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 20, 1974.
