Mill Covered Bridge, Tunbridge, Vermont

Mill Tunbridge
(a/k/a Spring Road, Hayward, Noble)
Daniels Construction, 2000

Multiple Kingpost, 60′, spanning First Branch White River on Spring Road in Tunbridge village, west off Route 110.

On March 4, 1999, the original bridge, built in 1883 by A.C.Adams, was wrenched from its abutments by an ice jam.

The bridge resting on top of the ice, it was believed that the structure could be rescued. Robert Childs, a local construction expert, devised a plan, and Tunbridge selectmen gave their approval to begin the operation. Before the necessary equipment and materials could be assembled, the ice shifted and the bridge was lost on March 5.
