Lamoille River Bridge
Posted December 30, 2009, by SKC Observer (skc [dot] observer [at] gmail [dot] com)

I used to live in Vermont, and this bridge was part of the way home to my parent's house. I am afraid to report that the bridge was lost. In 2007, Vermont Department of Transportation inspectors found the bridge had markedly deteriorated and reduced its rating to 3 tons. Article: http://www.aot.state.vt.us/PressReleases/2007/August/VTransW... If you read the article, they planned at that time to remove the bridge within months of this release. It appears the bridge was removed in the latter months of 2007 and replaced by a temporary bridge strong enough to handle truck traffic. The bridge was a Tenney Truss Bridge, and I thought that it was a very attractive bridge. I have missed it the times I have returned to Vermont since its removal.
