Pine Brook Covered Bridge

    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.
