The current Notre Dame Bridge couplet may be considered a UCEB (or more accurately, a USEB/Ugly Steel Eyesore Bridge) compared to the original arch bridge. However, the bridge is the longest & tallest bridge in Manchester and one of the tallest, if not the tallest, bridge on the Merrimack River altogether. For these reasons, the current bridges are notable.
