The crossing location was assumed to have been the one about a mile north of Northfield, since several early images of Northfield do not show the town crossing as a covered bridge. Per the News and Advertiser (Northfield), March 3, 1914, "J. N. St. Clair was in town last week and finished the work of surveying for the plans for the new bridge, which is to be erected between Northfield and Northfield Falls, to take the place of the Red covered bridge. Work is to be begun as soon as the weather will permit." Per the News and Advertiser (Northfield), May 25, 1915, "The new Concrete bridge which was built between Northfield and Northfield Falls, last fall, to replace the old red covered bridge has been completed and accepted by the town."
