Clermont County, OH, June 10, 2010 - Said Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger, "It now appears that damage to the historic Stonelick Williams Corner Covered Bridge is so severe, that it cannot easily be repaired. The bridge will not be reopened to traffic until middle or late 2012.
Residents living near the bridge reported floor damage to the bridge caused by a large truck. The bridge was closed immediately.
The 140-foot Perintown or Stonelick bridge was built in 1878 to cross Stonelick Creek using a Howe Truss.
