A covered bridge, or kissing bridge, is a timber-truss bridge with a roof and siding which, in most covered bridges, create an almost complete enclosure.
The purpose of the covering is to protect the wooden structural members from the weather.
The brief moment of relative privacy while crossing the bridges earned them the name "Kissing Bridges".
