White River Bridge

I love the Vermont DOT. They preserve almost all of their bridges. If they do demolish one, they don't make it boring. Their new bridges have flair just like the old ones did. Meanwhile, the Maine DOT does just the opposite. No offense, DOT, but we need more trusses here in Maine.

Maybe Vermont can give us a few of their trusses. But if Vermont doesn't want to, that's fine with me.

Looking at the replacement bridge in the street view it seems they used a design that is strongly reminiscent of the older bridge.
