I believe that would not be considered a normal covered bridge but a fake if they are making adjustments like the concrete prefab beams , probably made in Fairview/Erie at Top Rock or New Enterprise on Manchester Rd.Ryan Bartosek of Franklin Township, PA here. Gudge Life Productions is my company and I'm head of the Gudgeonville Bridge Benefit, i.e. Rock The Bridge. Sandra, one of the Girard Township supervisors is on our board and here's what I can tell you about the future of the actual bridge site:
PennDOT is paying for the new bridge to be reconstructed and it *WILL* be a wooden/covered brige. The main supports will be steel and concrete and it will be wide enough (possibly 2 lanes) so snow plows and emergency vehicles can get through. It will be built out of modern flame retardant wood, that also allows spray paint to be cleaned off easily.
Furthermore, the replica/walkway the Township is building that our benefit is supporting has several proposed locations, the main one being Community Park in Lake City, PA.
if you want more info or info about our benefit check out our myspace page or email me [email protected]
Adjustments being made will be necessary for PennDot to be involved and paying the bill.
I'd like to hear what our bridgewright thinks about this.
Good luck with the benefit and I will be in touch to contribute.
