BM - South Lyndeborough Gulf Bridge

Map 

Description 

Deck truss viaduct, similar in design to the wrought-iron viaducts on the abandoned western segment of the Keene Branch (e.g. http://bridgehunter.com/nh/cheshire/bh70441/). Referred to as being about 70 feet high in a 1906 history of the town.

Replaced by a deck girder structure with concrete piers at some point in the mid-late 20th century.
