The Fallasburg Bridge is one of the last three covered bridges in the state of Michigan that is still open to vehicle traffic today. It was constructed in 1871 as a 100-foot long in the Brown truss system. It is unclear whether the present structure is the second or third of its sort in its location because records are not present.

Unlike other covered bridges from the 1800s, the Fallasburg Bridge is still capable of handling vehicular traffic. This is mostly due to the repairs done on the structure back in 1905 and 1945. It has a weight limit at 3 tons, though.

The Fallasburg Bridge is a part of the Fallasburg Pioneer Village, also known as the Fallasburg Historical District. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
