The Vaughan Creek Covered Bridge provides a link between the Fundy Trail Parkway and St. Martins and points east.

The new bridge, which opened to traffic on September 1, 2022, replaced the original crossing built in 1935.  The original covered bridge was closed in June 2017 and a temporary single-lane modular bridge was installed to maintain access through the sea caves and the Fundy Trail while the new bridge was constructed.

The new Vaughan Creek Covered Bridge is a two-lane wooden covered bridge built on the same alignment as the existing bridge.  It was designed to accommodate larger vehicles in two lanes of traffic (a first in New Brunswick), as well as provide a pedestrian passageway.

The new bridge provides St. Martins residents and visitors to the community with an improved transportation link, while preserving an important piece of the region's heritage.

The modular bridge was removed in October 2022.
