Taftsville has two covered bridges...one red and the other unpainted. Vehicles pass through this bridge. As only one vehicle from one direction can come through, the drivers slow down and make sure there is no one coming from the other side! The main reason for bridges to be covered is to avoid the need to clear the snow from the bridges in winter-time.
I cant imagine how beautiful this bridge would look in winter snow! This pic reminds me a bit of a famous photo of a Japanese red bridge.
