Great weetrees 2011-01-08 15:07

Hey Tom

Happy New Year to ya
interesting image on a few levels
1st its something i had never seen before so was wondering what it was gonna look like
2nd its so weird i looks just like a drive through garage :-)
3rd Why would you have a bridge covered in such a way?
Its looks very new is this a result of an old one rotting away or is it just very well looked after?

Cheers
John

Default To weetrees: Why Is the Bridge Covered?

Hi John,
The wooden bridges were built before steel so they wanted to keep the weight of winder snows off the wooden roadway. They are found all over New England and New York due to the long winters and plentiful timber.
Regards, Tom
