Ada Covered Bridge

ada-village-covered-bridgeAda Township, Kent County Michigan, is home to the Ada village covered bridge. This 125 foot span crosses the Thornapple River. Originally built around 1870, the bridge was closed to road traffic in 1930 when a new bridge was built downriver. The old covered bridge was restored in 1941 but was completely destroyed by fire in 1979. Through generous donations of the community, the bridge was rebuilt according to the original standards. Today the bridge connects the Village of Ada on one side and a park on the other side. The Ada bridge is open only to foot traffic.
