I recently discovered another
Covered Bridge in New Brunswick that I wasn't aware of.
It is not an old bridge but one that was recently built at the Village Historique Acadien
just outside the village of Caraquet New Brunswick which is in the northeastern
part of the province
1902 plan from Public works.
The length of the bridge is 71' by 14'.
The structure of the bridge is a
Howe truss of 10' spans.

This bridge is located in the
Village Historique Acadien.
It is 50 km's (30 Miles / 45 minutes) east of Bathurst NB on NB Highway 11.
If you are coming from the other direction it is 16 km's (10 miles / 15 minutes)
west of the Village of Caraquet.
This would be an interesting
stop for any Covered Bridge enthusiast.
Along with seeing one of the newest covered bridges in the world you will get a
chance to see a remarkably authentic Acadian Historical site
(Phoenix Award Winner and Attraction Canada 2001),
the Village Historique Acadien strives to portray the lives of Acadians
between 1770 and 1939. More than 40 complexes are
staffed by interpreters in period costumes who bring ancestral
customsand traditional trades back.
