Committee Rallies for Covered Bridge

Nevada County community organizations are rallying one more time to send a message to the Governor to save the covered bridge at Bridgeport. A local group known as the Save Our Bridge Campaign Committee is urging the community to write letters to Governor Brown in a final push to save the  bridge. President of the South Yuba River Parks Association, Dave Anderson, says the goal is to make sure money approved by the Senate and assembly stays in the budget.
