The Simpson Creek Covered Bridge is located in Bridgeport, West Virginia. It can be found off of Meadowbrook Road near the entrance of the beloved Meadowbrook Mall. The structure stands 14.25-foot-wide (4.34 m) and 75-foot-long (23 m). It is known for being a multiple-king truss bridge, which was built by Asa Hugill in 1881. The current location of the bridge is not the original spot it first was. After being washed out by a flood in 1889, it was decided that is be relocated half a mile upstream where it resides to this day.
