5/10/19 SR 235 is open to the bridge from the Medora side. The road is washed out between County Road 600S and 460W on the east side of the bridge. The bridge can be accessed by going south on County Road 460 W from the east side to CR 500 S then west to CR 600 W then north to SR 235 ending at the east end of the bridge. Some of this route is gravel but is navigable.
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.
