Red Covered Bridge

A couple months back I was riding through Bureau County when I came across this old covered bridge. It is known as the RED COVERED BRIDGE over Bureau Creek on Old Dad Joe Trail in Princeton.
This is a Covered Howe through truss bridge. It was built in 1863 and rehabilitated in 1973 with a total length: 147.9 ft., a deck width: 15.4 ft. and vertical clearance above deck: 11.9 ft.

Location: N4124'59" , W8928'43"
