The Roof is On

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 1 July 2014 in Architecture.

At its dedication in December 2011, the Chambers Covered Bridge didn't have its roof in place because the materials hadn't arrived. Last fall, on the way to Sedona, we stopped in Cottage Grove, Oregon. The roof was in place and the bridge was looking good. It has come a long way from near collapse.

Part of the Covered Bridges of Oregon series.

A fine shot of this finished covered bridge. Is it now a "walkers only" bridge?
I found the walkways leading to it unique looking.

@Don: Yes, it's for walkers and cyclists only.

I like this viewpoint - I am guessing it is a pedestrian bridge from the look of the ramp

A great PoV captured here!! And what a way to tell a story and its history with a photo of what it used to look like before being repaired.
