Tipers Bridge, Spanning Great Wicomico River at State Route 200, Kilmarnock, Lancaster County, VA
Significance: Built in six months during the depth of the Depression, the Tipers Bridge is a well preserved example of a once standard bridge type that was commonly used to economically span a large number of major river crossings in the Virginia Tidewater. It is located at a crossing that has a long history of some economic importance in Northumberland and Lancaster Counties. This is the second oldest of ten remaining swing-spans dating from between 1930 and 1957 currently listed in the Virginia Department of Transportation bridge inventory.
