Medora Covered Bridge
The SR 235 bridge over the East Fork of the White River is closed for redecking. The projected opening date is now early December, depending on the weather and no further problems.The highway signs are confusing but the Medora Covered Bridge is open at both ends and can be accessed from SR 50 or SR 135. There is parking at both ends of the bridge with a picnic area and boat ramp on the west end.
Welcome to the Medora Covered Bridge. Hop up on your imaginary horse drawn vehicle to take a nostalgic journey back in time. You can now pass through the longest river spanning historic covered bridge in the USA whose framework is just as it was when built in 1875 because it did not have to be upgraded to meet modern vehicle standards.
The fact that it is closed to vehicle traffic makes it ideal for exploring the many facets that make up a covered bridge. One can even go under the bridge if the river is not too high.
Please cross this bridge at a walk because when the horses trot it is thought to cause vibrations which can damage the bridge.
