COVERED BRIDGE

Location

Modern covered bridge over Rock Creek on Crosby Road in Morrison

Step Back in Time

Step back in time when you visit Whiteside County’s very own covered bridge. Located north of Highway 30 off of Orange Street, the bridge is on the way to Morrison Rockwood State Park. Only its size indicates that the bridge is, in fact, new construction. At 148 feet, the two-span covered bridge is much larger than those you will find elsewhere.
