Another covered bridge failing

Another covered bridge has failed inspection and been closed to heavy traffic.

Vaughan Creek Bridge in St. Martins now has a weight restriction of 18 tonnes….so it’s closed to tour buses carrying tourists, according to CBC. The bridge is still open to smaller vehicles…but the tourists now have to get off the buses and cross it on foot. Excursion operators are now making it part of the experience…walking across a covered bridge, talking about its history and giving them the opportunity to take pictures.
