Troy Bridge Replacement Survey
The Covered Bridge on the intersection of River Road and Veilleux Road was a historic bridge in Troy, Vermont. Originally built in 1910, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 due to the iconic lattice truss structure. This bridge was the only surviving covered bridge in the town of Troy before it sadly burned down on February 6th, 2021. The town of Troy wants to use this survey to determine what the residents of the town want to replace the bridge with, and whether the bridge should be fully restored with historical accuracy.
