|Rumford, Maine, USA|
|Principals:||John A. Roebling's Sons Co.|
|Main cables:||Wire (steel)|
- Described in a Roebling ad: "...carries 900 ft. of a 14 inch diameter stainless steel pulpline [build for Oxford Paper Co.] over a canal and uneven terrain. It has eight spans, the longest of which is 166 ft. Rigidity of the suspension system was achieved by running a pair of tie cables from one anchorage to the other, connecting all tower tops. The cost of a steel trestle to support this pulpline would have been much higher."
- See (footbridge) - Rumford, Maine, USA. The pipelines were constructed as part of the same project.
