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!
