Additional Details:
Many and varied are the reasons advanced for the covering on these old bridges. Although there are innumerable explanations, the most logical is the economic one. Unprotected wood decays rapidly, and the early settlers found that the life of these river crossings was lengthened by putting a covering on and keeping the vital timbers dry. In this manner, moisture could not lodge in the wood.
