A side portal in the Comstock Bridge exposes the plank lattice truss and gives the user a glimpse around a sharp bend in the road. Look up throught the rafters to see the original wood shingles under the metal roof.

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