Lehman/Port Royal Covered Bridge in Juniata County

Lehman's Port Royal Covered Bridge is a pleasant span in Juniata County. It is 107 feet long and utilizes a double Burr Arch bridge method of construction. We visited when there was a light rain, which is such a pleasant thing to do with that kind of weather, being able to listen to the pitter patter of the rain drops on the roof of a covered bridge. It is 107 feet long and it was completely rebuilt, albeit with a steel stringer structure and the wood portions built on top of it, using original timber, after the devastation inflicted upon most of the state during Hurricane Agnes in 1972. The bridge crossing originally dates back to 1888.

If you are in the area, we definitely recommend checking out this cool bridge.
