Hillsboro Covered Bridge

The Hillsboro Covered Bridge, also known as the Hillsboro-Grange City Covered Bridge, is a covered Burr arch truss over Fox Creek in Fleming County, Kentucky.


Constructed circa late-1860’s based upon a design by Theodore Burr’s 1814 truss design that utilized multiple kingposts, the Hillsboro Covered Bridge featured yellow pine timber with double-shouldered braces. 1 It was bypassed in 1968 when a new alignment of KY Route 111 was completed.
