Turner's Bridge

Turner's Covered Bridge sits quietly on a gravel Harrison Township backroad between the Pennsylvania Turnpike and PA Route 31.  For over 110 years, this Burr truss design has crossed the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River.  This Bedford County owned bridge is similar to other Burr truss bridges within the county, in that the truss work is exposed.  Turner's Bridge has also been called Diehl's Bridge.
