    The Bridgeport Bridge stretches over the South Yuba River in Nevada County on Wednesday. The historic bridge, built in 1862 by David I. Wood, is the said to be longest wood-covered bridge in the country. It has been closed since 2011 because of structural problems. A group of preservationists is pushing the state to come up with the money to get it fixed and reopened.
