Notes
Survey number HAER ME-8
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N486).
Building/structure dates: 1910 initial construction
Significance: Constructed in 1910 by the Town of Houlton at a cost of $6,310.07, the Smith Bridge is a riveted steel, two-span Warren pony truss with an overall length of 173 feet. It is the second oldest and longest structure of the type known to exist in the State. The structure is significant as an example of early twentieth century bridge building technology in Maine, and as an unaltered representative of a class of steel trusses which have virtually disappeared from the State's highways.
