Rockdale County Bridge

Georgia's latest covered bridge isn't historic, but it exemplifies the interest the public still has in covered bridges. The bridge for this location was originally designed as a prestressed concrete bridge. However, county planners decided to make this bridge a landmark by adding a large wooden superstructure and rock facing to the underlying concrete bridge. Concerned about the possibility of fire led the county to install cameras, smoke detectors, and a sprinkler system. Total cost of the redesigned bridge: $880,000.

For more information, the city of Conyers has a page about the bridge on their website.
