(BLOOMFIELD) - The only covered bridge in Greene County was recently damaged and the Greene County commissioners are looking for the culprit. They are also in the process of getting repairs done.

"We think, by just looking at the pictures and visiting the site, that somebody has went through there with an oversize load and got stuck then backed up," Graves says. "No one has called and said they did the damage, so we're going to have to fix it."

The commissioners say the repairs are a priority not only because of the obvious pride the county has in the bridge, but the fact looms there are events slated to take place at the bridge later this year.

The estimated costs to the county won't be known for sure until the insurance carrier is contacted, but an estimate on the repairs on both the front where the recent damage occurred and on the back where upgrades are needed total $7,450.
