GUILFORD, Vt. (AP) - A 144-year-old covered bridge in the town of Guilford, Vermont, has reopened after several months of repairs.

It cost nearly $290,000 to fix the Green River Covered Bridge, including wall and abutment work.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports (https://bit.ly/1bI41RH) a decision made earlier this year to cut the span’s weight limit from 8 tons to 4 tons is going to remain for now, meaning only passenger cars and light trucks can use the bridge. Town officials will consider the use of a heavier vehicle when there’s an emergency.
