Lancaster. PA, November 30, 2011 - A pair of local covered bridges damaged by Tropical Storm Lee will be fixed, but the county also might raise them two feet.

While a storm like Tropical Storm Lee was a rare occurrence, it could happen again.

That's why Douts, director of Lancaster County's facilities management department, told the county commissioners Wednesday that when repairs are mapped out for the Seigrist's Mill Bridge (WGN 38-36-37) and the Pinetown Road Bridge (WGN 38-36-05, two covered bridges damaged by Lee, engineers are going to investigate raising the structures by two feet.
