[ARCHIVED] Bridgeport Covered Bridge Reopening

Bridgeport Covered Bridge Reopening Ceremony

On Thursday, November 4, the Save our Bridge campaign held a grand re-opening ceremony to commemorate the completion of the $6.9 million rehabilitation of the Bridgeport Covered Bridge. The bridge is a visually striking, cherished icon that connects us to nature and to our local history. Not only is it beautiful and unique – in fact, the 225-foot, single-span Howe Truss, Burr Arch structure is the only one of its kind in the nation – but it’s also part of our living history. I recall herding my family’s cows across the bridge as a child. Maybe you have memories of crossing the bridge when you were younger?

I want to give a hearty thanks to district 4 resident and community leader, Doug Moon, the chair of the Save our Bridge Committee (who also serves on the Penn Valley MAC!). Any project of this magnitude requires dedication, patience, and diligently knitting together the many pieces and players involved. Great job, Doug. You have made such a difference.

In the photo included with this article, I am standing with Senator Nielsen – who was pivotal in securing the $2+ million funding at the senate committee level, and my colleague, Chair of the Board of Supervisors Dan Miller.
