By the time you've built the bridge and put up barriers both sides to stop people falling in, sticking a roof on isn't much extra work and probably makes the sides stronger. Which was obviously a good thing as they don't look very straight even so...

I'm just curious as you don't see such bridges in the UK. There's a lot of extra work involved which you wouldn't do unless there was a good reason.

Wooden bridges rot pretty quickly but covering them extends their lifespan.

There might have been some odd legal or tax statuses for "covered buildings" that made sticking a roof on it beneficial.

Wikipedia says "Uncovered wooden bridges have a lifespan of only 10 to 15 years because of the effects of rain and sun."
So it's doing alright for a 103 year old bridge. Foresight, that.

Me and Stu are visiting Raf in California, today we've headed into Oregon for the eclipse. Unfortunately there are forest fires so everything is covered in ash and the view from our AirBnB is weird. We also stopped in the woods on the way up the coast from San Francisco.
