Humpback Bridge – Virginia

While on our way from Virginia to the New River Gorge, we saw a sign on Interstate 64 for Humpback Bridge. Less than five minutes from the interstate is this historical bridge.




The bridge spans Dunlap Creek.


This location is also a site for the Virginia Tourism Corporation “LOVEworks” project. As you can see, different objects spell the word “love”. The “L” is made from local bricks while the “O” is a gear from a paper machine at a nearby company. The “V” is a natural element created by the tree and finally the “E” is old railroad ties.


The park is just outside of Covington, Virginia and has a nice picnic area. Be sure to get out and stretch your legs at this historical landmark!

    Second picture from the bottom, in which the bridge appears to lurch from bank to bank. 😀
