St. Johnsbury & Lamoille County [Vermont Northern]
Wolcott, Vermont (Fisher Covered Railroad Bridge)
June 3, 1976

It takes a broadside view of the St. Johnsbury & Lamoille County's Wolcott, Vermont covered bridge to appreciate the actual size of the structure. The central pier was added in 1968 as part of a strenghthening project, in which steel girders were also added. It looks like cribbing has been applied since then to the central pier to protect it against floating debris in the Lamoille River, itself a sizeable waterway.
