Tynemouth Creek Covered Bridge - New Brunswick


Built in 1927, the Tynemouth Creek Covered Bridge near St. Martin's, New Brunswick is 94 feet (or roughly 28 meters long. The Tynemouth Creek Covered Bridge is one of a handful of covered bridges in the St. Martin's area (the Hardscrabble and Vaughan Creek Covered Bridges are likely more notable), which makes it perfect for combining the covered bridges as part of your visit. The bridge spans over the Tynemouth Creek, which is a tidal estuary and can make a pretty unique setting as far as covered bridges go. Like many covered bridges across the province of New Brunswick, the Tynemouth Creek Covered Bridge has a rustic and rural charm to it, which I certainly enjoyed as I explored what this great seaside covered bridge has to offer.



Only a few thousand feet north of the Bay of Fundy, the Tynemouth Creek Covered Bridge certainly gets battered by the elements. Whether it is solely by nature, or assisted by high clearance vehicles is another story.

The Tynemouth Creek Covered Bridge carries the rare distinction of crossing over a tidal estuary. I visited during low tide it seems.

Plaque telling the name of the covered bridge and the year it was built, as is standard for New Brunswick's covered bridges. There is a clearance of 4 meters and the bridge is of a gray color, common for many covered bridges in the province.

Lobster traps found near the covered bridge. This was a nice find near the bridge.

The Bayshore Freeway (US Route 101)

The Bayshore Freeway is a 56.4-mile component of US Route 101 located in the San Francisco Bay Area.  The Bayshore Freeway connects the southern extent of San Jose to the Central Freeway in the city of San Francisco.  The corridor was originally developed as the Bayshore Highway between 1923 and 1937.  The Bayshore Highway would serve briefly as mainline US Route 101 before being reassigned as US Route 101 Bypass in 1938.  Conceptually the designs for the Bayshore Freeway originated in 1940 but construction would be delayed until 1947.  The Bayshore Freeway was completed by 1962 and became mainline US Route 101 during June 1963.   Part 1; the history of the Bayshore Freeway Prior the creation of the Bayshore Highway corridor the most commonly used highway between San Jose and San Francisco was El Camino Real (alternatively known as Peninsula Highway).  The  American El Camino Real  began as an early example of a signed as an Auto Trail starting in 1906.  The era of State Highway Mainte

Former US Route 101 and California State Route 41 through Paso Robles

Paso Robles is a city located on the Salinas River of San Luis Obispo County, California.  As originally configured the surface alignments of US Route 101 and California State Route 41 converged in downtown Paso Robles.  US Route 101 originally was aligned through Paso Robles via Spring Street.  California State Route 41 entered the City of Paso Robles via Union Road and 13th Street where it intersected US Route 101 at Spring Street.  US Route 101 and California State Route 41 departed Paso Robles southbound via a multiplex which split near Templeton.   Pictured above is the cover of the September/October 1957 California Highways & Public Works which features construction of the Paso Robles Bypass.  Pictured below is the 1935 Division of Highways Map of San Luis Obispo County which depicts US Route 101 and California State Route 41 intersecting in downtown Paso Robles.   Part 1; the history of US Route 101 and California State Route 41 in Paso Robles Paso Robles ("Pass of the

Paper Highways; US Route 20 Alternate over Teton Pass

The 8,431-foot-high Teton Pass lies in the Teton Range of the Rocky Mountains within Teton County, Wyoming.  Presently Teton Pass is crossed by Wyoming Highway 22 and Idaho State Highway 33.  At one point the highway over Teton Pass was signed as US Route 20 Alternate.  US Route 20 Alternate was over Teton Pass never formally approved by the American Association of State Highway Officials nor has the corridor ever been officially part of a US Route.  The image above was taken from the 1949 Rand McNally Map of Idaho, Wyoming and Montana which shows US Route 20 Alternate branching from US Route 20/US Route 191 near Sugar City, Idaho and crossing Teton Pass towards Jackson, Wyoming.   Part 1; the history of US Route 20 Alternate over Teton Pass No major Auto Trail was ever assigned to Teton Pass as evidenced by the 1925 Rand McNally Map of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming .  On the Wyoming side Teton Pass can be seen as part of Wyoming Highway 25 ("WY 25") whereas no State Highway is
