I'll add a couple from western Indiana. Parke county, IN that has 32 covered bridges in about 445 sq. miles. That makes it the covered bridge capital of the world (according to the local government).

Here's one of the oldest that you can get to by road:



Another one that is pretty long, but no longer necessary to cross the river:




And finally, one that is no more - a victim of a flood:



Cheers!

Some (of many) bridges constructed and abandoned during WW II in the wilderness of the Northwest Territories in Canada (Canol Pipeline).

Typical of thousands of one-lane bridges all over New Zealand


Bridge on a New Zealand sheep farm, note the gate in the middle of the bridge.


Kinda fun looking through my pix for bridges...
