Big Red Oak Creek Covered Bridge - Located on Huel Brown Road/Covered Bridge Road, in Imlack Georgia. It is in Meriwether County

Bridge Description: This bridge was built in the 1840's and is 252.5 feet long. It was built with town lattice truss. It has a historic marker and there is parking on the side of the road. It goes over Big Red Oak Creek. It has also been known as Imlac Bridge.

Big Red Oak Creek Bridge Often referred to as the longest covered bridge in the state, this bridge has a very long (250 feet) timber-decked approach on one end. So while the bridge itself is the longest wooden bridge, the longest covered section of bridge still belongs to the Watson Mill bridge. No small consolation is the unsupported span length of this bridge which may well be the longest in the state at 115 feet. Howard's Bridge had a longer main span of 130 feet but a wooden pier was added along that span.

For well over a hundred years, this "symbol of early life in the state" has been kept in good repair. Through the efforts of the Meriwether Co. Historical Society, the bridge has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places and marked for preservation as a distinctive part of Georgia's heritage. - From "Covered Bridges of Georgia" by Thomas L. French, Jr. & Edward L. French.

So while the bridge itself is the longest wooden bridge, the longest covered section of bridge still belongs to the Watson Mill bridge. However, the unsupported span length of this bridge may well be the longest in the state at 115 feet.

Though Red Oak Creek bridge is Georgia's oldest remaining covered bridge, it may also be one of its sturdiest. It is open to traffic once again after minor repairs in 1998 and 1999.
