This bridge, built in 1908, carried the St. Johnsbury & Lamoille County RR over the Lamoille River until recently. The truss is a Town-Pratt with double lattice, which now only carries the deadload of the truss, roof and snow load. A steel pier was built in the river and now supposts four steel girders which carry the railroad live load. The this bridge has a full lenth cupola which allowed the smoke from the steam locomotives out of the bridge.
The park on the north side of the bridge is an excellent area to take photographs of this bridge. Easy access under bridge on south side, good for underside and panoramic photos.
Parking available at a roadside park.
