|December 2012 (39.2927 Degrees, -121.1949 Degrees) Bridgeport Covered Bridge
The Bridgeport Covered Bridge is an odd combination of an arch and a truss bridge with a 230 ft main span. It was designed by David Isaac Johnwood for the Virginia Turnpike Company with lumber from his sawmill 30 miles away. It is one of only nine surviving covered bridges in California and the longest single span covered bridge in the United States.
