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. The Blenheim 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.
