Description
This bridge is actually a steel stringer bridge with a concrete deck. It is in Ulster County just one mile from the Tappan Bridge. This is a strange looking covered bridge, it's height is out of proportion to historical covered bridges because higher clearance required. A large skew angle is also unusual. Windows would have made the bridge look better from up or down stream.

Photography
Easy from road, difficult side views.

Parking
