Hartland Covered Bridge – Built 1901

Hartland Covered Bridge, the longest covered bridge in the world at 391 metres long. It was built in 1901 but not covered until 1921. Which as in most bridges that I have seen so far are a wooden truss bridge and then look to have an attached independent shell to protect from weather or rot.

Despite its fame for being very big, it is also the most tackey of every bridge in New Brunswick, from the big sign, string lights at the entrance, and the food truck lot next to the bridge, this made me urn for the other bridges I have seen across New Brunswick.
