Melcher Covered Bridge in Parke County, Indiana undergoing a much-needed rehab. 


The Melcher Covered Bridge is undergoing a much-needed rehab/repair.  In April 2022 a crack was discovered on one of the interior arches of the bridge and it was immediately closed.  The bridge is now undergoing repairs to fix that and to rehab the whole bridge.  Work includes abutment repairs, new siding and roofing, implementing a stormwater management plan, and installation of pump-around/dewatering devices.  Hopefully, the bridge will reopen to traffic in 2024.
