Description
The Green River Pumping Station Covered Bridge is a one span Howe Truss with a total length of 95 feet. The bridge is currently closed to vehicular traffic. The Pumping Station Bridge crosses the Green River on Einice Williams Drive, north of Greenfield. The bridge is the second covered bridge at this location, replacing a bridge destroyed by arson in 1972.

Photography
This bridge is easy to photograph from any direction. The Portal shots are easy from either side since the bridge carries no traffic. The NE side of the bridge can be photographed from in front of or behind a dam on the river. To photograph the SW side of the bridge decend a small trail from the south side of the bridge. From here there are good views of the bridge with the dam behind it. A path follow the stream bank downstream, to get photos of the surronding hills along with the bridge.

Parking
Since the bridge is currently closed to vehicular traffic, May, 2003, parking is available on either side of the bridge.
