Bridges

The Roddy Road, Loys Station, and Utica Mills bridges are three of only eight remaining covered bridges in the state of Maryland. At least 52 such structures once graced the landscape of the state, but storms, fires, progress, and neglect have claimed almost all of them. The three bridges provide a good comparative study of wood bridge truss techniques, as each displays a different truss design. Weather permitting, be sure to bring a picnic as each of the three bridge sites features an adjacent recreation area.
