Flooding takes toll on historic bridges

Rockingham, Vermont - August 29, 2011

The flooding took a toll on infrastructure around the state -- including some of Vermont's historic covered bridges.

In Rockingham, the destruction of the 150-foot long Bartonsville Covered Bridge was caught on tape as it was swept away by the roaring Williams River.

The Village of Quechee was heavily damaged, with the covered bridge there torn away and left in tatters.

In Northfield Falls, the Cox Brook jumped it's banks and was doing damage to the Upper Cox bridge, one of three covered bridges in a quarter mile stretch.
