US 201 Kennebec River Bridge
This bridge as mentioned by Nathan Holth's link below has an interesting history. A vintage postcard image contains the information: "Lewiston, Augusta & Waterville Street Railway trolley car on the new railroad bridge in Waterville. The bridge spanning the Kennebec River was built in 1909 by Fred Ley Co., Springfield, Massachusetts." The concrete arch originally had a deck truss adjacent. This truss appears to have been replaced with steel beams in 1936. Subsequent road/pavement renovations occurred over the years giving a modern look from the top.
