Bayard Bridge crosses the North Branch Potomac from Grant County, West Virginia to Garrett County, Maryland. The bridge was built before 1900. It is a single through truss span, but because it is only 13 feet wide, it was closed by the state of Maryland in 1988. A campaign to replace the bridge was launched in the early 2000's.
