Sonestown or Davidson Covered Bridge

The Sonestown or Davidson Bridge is one of three Burr Truss bridges within Sullivan County.  It is located just off of US 220 south of the village of Sonestown.  The bridge, which was built in 1850, has recently undergone some rehabilitation.  In the summer of 2005, the bridge's stone abutments were reinforced as they were threatened from erosion by the changing banks of Muncy Creek. (1)  Since then, damage from flooding in 2011 closed the bridge for major repairs, and it reopened to traffic in 2013. (2)  The bridge has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1980.
