This is from Wikipedia : Riverdale Road Bridge is a covered bridge spanning the Grand River in Morgan Township, Ashtabula County, Ohio, United States. The bridge, one of currently 16 drivable bridges in the county, is a single span Town truss design. During its renovation in 1981, the floor was rebuilt and glue-laminated wood girders were added. Previously, center steel bracing had been replaced under the bridge in 1945. In 1987, a new concrete abutment for additional support was added after the road at the east end of the bridge washed out. The bridge’s WGCB number is 35-04-22, and it is located at 41°40′23.808″N 80°52′18.66″W / 41.67328°N 80.87185°W / 41.67328; -80.87185 (41.67328, 80.87185)[3] approximately 1.1 mi (1.7 km) north-northwest of Rock Creek.
