Covered Bridge of the Day

The Hyde Road Covered Bridge located in Yellow Springs, Greene County, Ohio is 77 feet long. It was built in 2014, and it spans a recreation trail which used to be a railroad right-of-way. It utilizes Howe trusses, and except for its use of glued, laminated (GluLam) beams it is essentially identical to covered bridges that were built in the second half of the nineteenth century. Because of its similarity to the Hueston Woods covered bridge I suspect they were designed by the same people, but since they utilize different trusses, I’m unsure.
