On Route 116 in Conway, Massachusetts, the Burkeville or Conway Covered Bridge stands, built around 1870 and is reported by one source as being the oldest surviving covered bridge in the US. Crossing the South River, it has the unique distinction of utilizing iron tension members into traditional timber truss work. 3G Construction stabilized and raised the elevation of the entire bridge.
This bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places.
