Cullman County, AL, November 18, 2010 - The Clarkson Covered Bridge is a step closer to a complete overhaul following the latest agreement between Cullman County and the state transportation department in planning a long-awaited teardown-and-rebuilding effort

According to the World Guide to Covered Bridges published by the National Society for the Preservation of Covered Bridges, the 250-foot Clarkson, or Legg bridge was built in 1904 to cross Crooked Creek in two spans using the Town truss. It is one of the longest covered bridges in the South.
