Town Lattice Bridge

The Smith Rapids Covered Bridge is the only glue-laminated Town Lattice covered bridge in Wisconsin. The bridge is located on Wisconsin's Rustic Road 105 in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and spans the South Fork of the Flambeau River. Constructed in 1991, the bridge uses an attractive diamond-shaped truss pattern, called the Town Lattice. The pattern was patented in the 1820s by its designer, Ithiel Town.
