Bowers Bridge uses a rarely seen tied arch truss. The span is exceptionally trim in appearance. The truss is protected from the elements by a post and beam shed placed on the bridge deck.

Our thanks to the Town of West Windsor for allowing the posting of the Vermont Covered Bridge Society Welcome patch. For more information about the West Windsor area visit their website at
