Old Blenheim Bridge was a wooden covered bridge that spanned Schoharie Creek in North Blenheim, New York. With an open span of 210 feet, it had the longest span of any surviving single-span covered bridge in the world, although the structure’s total length made it second in that respect to the Bridgeport Covered Bridge (233 feet long with a 208 feet clear span). The bridge, opened in 1855, was also one of the oldest of its type in the United States. It was destroyed on August 28, 2011 as a result of flooding from Tropical Storm Irene.
