Covered Bridges of Lancaster County PA.

Lancaster  County, currently with 29, is the county with the most covered bridges in the state of Pennsylvania.   Many are still in use.  Some are located near urban areas while others are are in rural areas.  

Like the covered bridges in near by Chester County most were built using the Burr Truss technique. The only remaining bridge that is not Burr Arch is Landis Mill Covered Bridge which is build using Multiple King Post construction. Most bridges in the county are painted red with white portals.

To simplify navigation and to keep loading times down I have divided the bridges into the same groups the Lancaster County Government uses for the Covered Bridge Tours on their web site.

Like the Chester County Covered Bridge pages at the bottom of each page I've put the longitude and latitude for the bridges on that page. Note, these are in degrees, minutes, and decimal minutes (and not seconds). (No warrantee is implied in providing this data. Use at your own discretion.)
