Wright Covered Bridge

RIDGE ROAD, Eighty Four, PA 15330 GET DIRECTIONS
Local: 724-228-5520
The Wright Bridge has a tin-covered gable roof with vertical plank siding that is painted barn red inside and out. The deck, abutments, wingwalls, and timber supports resting in the stream are also typical of other Washington County covered bridges. This bridge is one of several that has outlived any record of its construction. All but two of the trusses in its Kingpost system are sawed, indicating that the timbers from a previous bridge were reused. The original date of construction is estimated c.1875. The Wright Bridge was restored by the County in 1999. It is open to vehicular traffic (<15 tons) and is set over the North Fork of Pigeon Creek in Somerset Township.
