Union Covered Bridge Survives Flood

After a few days of concern, the flood waters are receding and the Union Covered Bridge is still standing.

The water level raised by nearly 21 inches in recent downpours, causing fears the 147 year old bridge would be torn apart.

The bridge, built in 1871, is currently undergoing renovation. Fast moving waters caused 5 of the 6 jacks being used to hold up the bridge to come dislodged and float down river.

The bridge is one of only 4 remaining covered bridges in the state, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
