Sadly, the Rudolph and Arthur Covered Bridge was destroyed by remnants of Hurricane Ida on September 1, 2021. Pieces of the bridge washed ashore and dammed at the Chesterville Road/Route 841 bridge over Big Elk Creek.  
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, but was delisted in 2022 after Hurricane Ida.
