Covered Bridge

54 comments
What is it?
This is a covered bridge. Covered bridges are functional, beautiful, and add a touch of class and history to a city that has one. There are around only 1,600 covered bridges in the world today. These bridges tend to be in isolated places. Unlike uncovered wooden bridges which tend to last only 20 years or so, covered bridges can last 100 years or more. Virtually all covered bridges were a single lane wide and were used to cross streams.  In terms of this set, it contains 1032 pieces, is 5.7" wide, 5.9" tall, 21.4" long, weighs 46.7 ounces, and sits on a 16x68 footprint.  The road is 8 studs wide.  The set includes a  6-stud wide truck and driver who can travel across the bridge.

Why did you build it?
I built it because covered bridges are beautiful, rare, and historical.  It would be wonderful to see a covered bridge add some history to a LEGO City display.

Why do you believe this would make a great LEGO set?
I think this would be a great LEGO set because it would be a beautiful addition to any LEGO city.  It would remind people of the importance and the history of these bridges.
