Lancaster County, Pa. Feb. 7, 2011 - Repairs were recently completed and the covered bridge on Hunsecker Road has been reopened to traffic.

The 37-year-old span bridging the Conestoga River between Upper Leacock and Manheim townships, was closed Sept. 16 after a one-car crash in its interior damaged weight-bearing beams.

The Hunsecker Bridge was built in 1974 to replace a similar covered bridge destroyed by Tropical Storm Agnes in 1972. Before the accident, the wooden bridge carried nearly 900 vehicles daily.
