Downsville Bridge is a wooden covered bridge over the East Branch of the Delaware River in the hamlet of Downsville in Delaware County, New York. At 174 feet (53 m), it is currently the longest historic covered bridge in the state after the 232-foot (71 m) Blenheim Bridge in Schoharie County was destroyed during Tropical Storm Irene in 2011.

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[1]
