A picture tour and historical information about covered bridges
Click on the name to visit the bridge:
Bogert's Bridge is the oldest in Lehigh County and among the oldest still standing in the nation. A truck almost caused the loss of this bridge when it was heavily damaged in a 1956 accident. The local "Save the Bogert's Bridge Committee" was pictured in cartoons of the time defending the bridge with a cannon.
|The Burr truss is clearly visible in the picture. Note that two beams form the arch. The siding is vertical planks.||The
bridge is 145 feet long and crosses the Little Lehigh River in the Lehigh
Parkway. The bridge now services only pedestrian traffic.
