Pine Brook Covered Bridge

The Pine Brook Covered Bridge, also known as the Wilder Covered Bridge, carries North Road over Pine Brook in Waitsfield, Vermont. Constructed in 1872, the two-span Kingpost truss bridge is one of two surviving 19th-century covered crossings in the town. 2 It is also one of two covered Kingpost trusses in the state.

In 1976, major repairs were completed to the deteriorated Pine Brook Covered Bridge by Milton Gratton Associates. 1 Work involved rebuilding the abutments in concrete and adding load-bearing steel girders under the deck. The bridge deck was replaced in 1989.
