Stroudwater River Bridge

Jeff,

I'm OK reworking things but Congress Street looks like a concrete arch with a stone finish and the old abutments don't appear visible based on the aerial/satellite views.

How confident are you in your statement?

Regards,

Your location is wrong. This is the Congress Street bridge crossing the Stroudwater River in Portland. The stonework is still there, even though the bridge was modernized in the late 1970s.
