The Bethel-New Hope Bridge is the longest covered bridge still extant in Ohio. This bridge replaced an older one in 1878. There have been major renovations in 1902, 1932, and in 1977.

The New Hope Bridge is approximately six miles north of Georgetown, Ohio on Rt. 68. Turn right on the New Hope-Bethel Road (going west). The bridge is immediately to your right. To get there from Cincinnati, take the Bypass, Rt. 275, to the Batavia exit (Rt. 32). Drive east on Rt. 32 to Rt. 68. Turn south and drive to New Hope. The bridge is south-west of the town on New Hope-Bethel Road.
