Duck Brook Bridge
The last of the major bridges constructed in Acadia National Park, Duck Brook Bridge is also the largest road-related structure in the park, and the largest continuous concrete arch deck bridge in the eastern United States. Construction of the $366,000 structure was the final project in the completion of the Paradise Hill Road, which provided a new entrance to the park bypassing the crowded streets of Bar Harbor.
