LANCASTER, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio covered bridge that is more than a century old has reopened for public use four months after being damaged by a fire that authorities believed was intentionally set.
The Lancaster Eagle-Gazette (http://ohne.ws/147X7Mw ) reports the bridge at Ohio University's branch campus in Lancaster reopened this week.
The structure is known as the John Bright No. 2 Covered Bridge. It originally spanned a creek near Carroll but was moved to the campus 25 years ago to be preserved.
The fire Jan. 15 damaged the deck of the bridge and two support posts. A campus official says repairs cost the school about $5,500.
He says city engineers determined the bridge is now structurally sound and safe to use.
