The Hartland Covered Bridge in New Brunswick, Canada is the longest covered bridge in the world and has been open since July 4th, 1901. Crossing the Saint John River was very difficult in earlier years and the residents on both sides joined forces to begin the creation of the bridge. Pedestrians and horse and wagons made good use of this bridge and in 1906, the government took ownership and cared for the maintenance.
Repairs have been done to the Hartland Covered Bridge over the years to keep this crossing safe and today, cars are still allowed to use it, although restrictions have been enforced.
