Covered Bridges of Southern Chester County
Pine Grove Bridge
Pine Grove Bridge is the second bridge that crosses the Octorara and joins Chester and Lancaster Counties (see Mercer's on Central Chester Co. Covered Bridge page). This is the largest covered bridge in Chester County and it's only "double" span bridge.
Pine Grove is Chester County's largest covered bridge. It is really two bridges back to back. The above picture shows the double Burr Truss construction.
During the winter of 2007-2008 Pine Grove was torn down and was rebuilt. Here are some pictures during the construction.
And here are some post-construction images. Note the integration of new and old timbers.
See the recently reconstructed Larkin Covered Bridge at the bottom of Central Chester County Covered Bridges or the Larkin Page for pictures showing how the old timbers were integrated with new wood after its move and reconstruction.
