Great to see! We need more groups like this out there!!

We do have a growing group of people fighting to save this bridge. Please like us on Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/FrankJWoodBridge/
We are actively looking for examples of similar age bridges still in use in other states to use in the 106 process as examples of other states investing in their historical bridges. This bridge has a long future if we can get our voice heard and we intend to!
Unfortunately, Maine seems to have a "Rubber stamp" approach when it comes to historic bridges.
Maine DOT recommends demolishing it.
It's Maine; kiss it goodbye.
There's news about the bridge. Link below.
