After our unexpected visit to the vet yesterday, we took a trip up past Dover Foxcroft to visit with a friend. On the way home, we stopped to see what I could capture of this bridge. I posted the full image as the cover image on our Facebook page.
This bridge, built in 1857, was washed away by the flood of April 1, 1987. A modern covered bridge, patterned after the original, was built on the original abutments in 1990. The replacement was built to have a larger load-capacity and was raised in order to prevent future flood damage.
The bridge has a clear span of 120 feet over the Piscataquis River and is located just off Route 15, south of Guilford Village
Yesterday was a good day!
