This bridge is a traditionally composed example of a state-designed through truss in Maine. The bridge retains excellent historic integrity and was built by the Phoenix Bridge Company, a bridge builder that had a long and colorful history. This particular bridge is noted for its multi-span design as well as its wide 40 foot roadway. The roadway is currently configured as a two-lane road, which makes this historic bridge offer a roadway width essentially as wide as a modern bridge. However, it is likely that this bridge was originally designed to serve four lanes of traffic, since 10 foot lanes with no shoulders were not uncommon during this period.
