The Gross Covered Bridge is 100-foot (30 m) Burr Arch truss covered bridge in the census-designated place of Beaver Springs, Spring Township in Snyder County, Pennsylvania. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 29, 1997 and was documented by the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) in 1981.
The covered bridge was built in 1871 and originally spanned Middle Creek north of Beaver Springs on Township Route 574. It was moved in 1982 to its present location on Township Route 427 in Beaver Springs, spanning a run-off channel that flows into Middle Creek. The bridge was moved when a dam and resulting reservoir were created on the stream originally spanned by the bridge.
