Patrick Groves Appeal-Democrat Sponsored by Publishing In Local historic landmark gets a major facelift Appeal-Democrat A historic Penn Valley bridge got a major facelift as part of a long-running reno- vation effort. Located at the South Yuba River State Park in Nevada County, the Bridgeport Cov- ered Bridge underwent a sig- nifi cant renovation project last month, according to a press release from park offi - cials. Built in 1862, the bridge has undergone other renovations and repairs with this being a major undertaking. Once the project is completed, expect- ed in the fall of 2020, it will be eighteen inches taller with new shingles, sidings, fl oor planking, interior trusses and steel tension rods. As of June 28, all of the roof shakes and roofi ng struc- tures have been removed ren- dering it open and fl at topped. The wheel planks, or wearing surface planks, from the fl oor of the bridge have also been removed. All of the roof shakes will eventually be replaced with new shakes when the bridge is re-assembled. The roof shakes do not have historic signifi cance be- cause there has been a need to replace them periodically over the years for various reasons, mainly weather de- struction. An effort to re-use as much structuring as possi- ble is planned. Bird Walks, wildfl ower walks, Independence Trail nature walks, gold panning demonstrations, a history station, festivals are some of the activities that are avail- able at the park throughout the year.
