This Pennsylvania Truss style bridge spans the Connecticut River and will be 100 years old in 2020. It has been deemed functionally obsolete and is slated for replacement next year. The passage of time has not been kind to this bridge in a society deeply dependent on cars.

History is invoked by mention of the Old North Bridge. In 1775, it was used in the Battle of Concord. It was dismantled in 1793, being deemed no longer practical. The bridge was subsequently rebuilt multiple times in: 1875, 1889, and 1909. The current bridge was built in 1956 with 1760 drawings.
