Spring 2018 Trip: Day 81 - Ramp Covered Bridge, Newburg, PA

Since the weather is really nice, why not check out another of Pennsylvania's covered bridges? This time it was the Ramps Covered Bridge in Newburg, Pennsylvania. Unlike the Sachs Bridge, this one can be used for one way traffic. The other side, though, provides no place to park and take a picture.

The 130-foot bridge was built over the Condoguinet Creek in 1870 and is the only bridge in Cumberland County that's still on its original foundation. It's still standing today due to repairs made in 1967 and in 1972-73. I waited for an Amish buggy to cross it, but none did, ruining my perfect Amish countryside picture.
