This might be the only covered bridge still in active use within a metropolitan area. Shown here is the Concord Covered Bridge, located southeast of Smyrna, Georgia in the greater Atlanta area. The 132-foot (40-meter) bridge was built in 1872 (though the sign on the bridge says circa 1850) and still carries heavy traffic along Concord Road over Nickajack Creek. Unfortunately, due to the amount of vehicles passing through, I was only able to get this side of the bridge.

Yes, that's a high possibility. I've seen them at many other bridges than this one, although not in New York State, Virginia, Pennsylvania or Alabama where I've actually been. The historic ones in North and South Carolina are no longer open to traffic. If you look at some of the covered bridge photos on the site by Dale Travis, I'm sure you'll see more like that.

I absolutely HATE all the signs and mess that they've put here, but what can you do?

It's a beautiful bridge, despite the horrible distractions.
