Dock Road Bridge
Posted April 23, 2014, by Betty-Lou Murray Quigley (Celtyankee [at] verizon [dot] net)

I believe the Dock Road bridge was constructed by Reed & Reed. My grandfather, John Brace, worked for Reed & Reed for many years and actually lived on Dock Road (now 140 Dock Road). We all called it the "green bridge" and my brother and the Jones boys used to jump off the bridge into the river. I have many fond memories of the time I spent in Alna, Maine as a child in the 50s and 60s. It was a wonderful place to grow up in.
