The Bridgeport Bridge stretches over the South Yuba River in Nevada County. 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.
