I would like to take this time to mention the book,
     NO FASTER THAN A WALK
            THE COVERED BRIDGES OF NEW BRUNSWICK
                   By Stephen & John Gillis

Without it's help I would not have been able to find many of these bridges or the
details about them.It is great reading and if you have any more interest in
the Covered Bridges of New Brunswick. I would recommend that you get a copy of it.

I would also like to thank Ron Joyce of the NB Dept. of Transportation for his help
with the uncovered bridges and the plans of the 1920's Covered Bridge.

Today, Feb 2013 there are 62 Covered Bridges still standing
These include:
58 maintained by DTI, formerly DOT
2 Maintained by the Fundy Federal Park
1 at Magnetic Hill Amusement Park.
1 at Acadian Village Park near Caraquet.

The Black River Bridge built in 1912.
Before you begin your tour of the Covered Bridges of New Brunswick 
I wanted to show a picture of the type of bridge that was being built by 
The Province Nova Scotia at the same time.
These steel one lane bridges crossed many of the provinces
rivers and a few are still remaining today.
However they did not have the endurance of the wooden covered bridges.
Steel and salt air just don't mix that well.

Nova Scotia also had a number of wooden covered bridges which can be 
viewed by using the link below in the LINK section.

The Map Page will make it easier to find a particular bridge.

Don't forget to have a look at the St. Nicholas River No. 1.

This Bridge was destroyed by electrical fire on Feb. 26 2001

Bob had the following to say about the center
Click on the Center to view the Covered Bridges that are in this area 
It looks like a covered Bridge outside and inside with beams and trusses.
It is not hard to find, take Exit 365 off Route 2 (TCH) There are large billboards advertising it on either side of the exit. There are other surprises inside which you will discover when you visit.
We opened the Info Centre in June 2003 and had the following number of visitors pass through its doors:
2003 - 12,500, 2004 - 16,000, 2005 - 20,000, In 2006 we are expecting over 25,000 since we just installed the two billboard signs on the TCH in December 2005. Sign dimensions 20ft x 15ft with poles 24 ft high.
