Buck Run Covered Bridge

This is the third bridge to be on this site, first a covered bridge, second a steel truss bridge and now this modern two-lane covered bridge. This bridge is currently the longest single-span wooden bridge in Ohio. At the request of the Federal Highway Administration and Ohio Department of Transportation, the Union County Engineer was challenged to prove that building a covered bridge is more economical than other bridge types.
