The Indiana Department of Transportation says improvements to
the nation’s largest covered bridge have been completed ahead of
schedule.

The agency says a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the restored
Medora Covered Bridge will take place Tuesday afternoon.

The span over the East Fork of the White River in Jackson County
was built in 1875 and is the last standing triple-span covered
bridge in Indiana. It measures 434 feet long with a 12-foot
overhang at each end. The site about 50 miles north of Louisville,
Ky., is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Federal funds paid the restoration. It originally was scheduled
to be completed in November.
