July 3, 2007 - Destroyed in September 2003 by Tropical Storm Henri, the Delaware Department of Transportation has put out bids for rebuilding the Wooddale covered bridge.

Construction is expected to begin in September and take about a year. The sixty-foot Wooddale bridge was built in 1870 to cross Red Clay Creek using the Town Truss.

The Wooddale bridge, WGN 08-02-03, was one of two covered bridges to survive in the state of Delaware.
