Cedar Ford Covered Bridge is taking shape in Monroe County
The newest Indiana Covered Bridge, the Cedar Ford Covered Bridge, was moved to its abutments on March 22, 2019. This bridge originated from Shelby County where it was placed into storage after being moved to the Shelby County Fairgrounds. It was not stored properly and the timbers were damaged. By the time the bridge was sold to an engineer and the timbers properly stored and cared for, the damage was already done. Only 10% of the original timbers are usable in the new bridge. They are hoping that the bridge is finished by May 2019.
