Bridgeport Bridge nears completion

Work on the restoration of the historic 1862 Bridgeport Covered Bridge in Penn Valley is nearly complete. The metal trusses and support cables that had stabilized the span as it sits over the South Yuba River during the restoration have been removed, and the bridge is standing on its own for the first time in years. The restoration is expected to be complete by mid-September, according to workers from Spectra Historic Construction.
