Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of all 5 bridges from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Androscoggin River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

Notes
  • John A Roebling's Son Co. added the pipeline onto an existing footbridge. From a Roebling ad: "... supports a 400 foot section of the 30 inch diameter water line (capacity 12,000,000 gpd) across the Androscoggin River. A substantial saving was accomodated by erecting this bridge with its 300 ft. center span adjacent to and attached to an existing footbridge."
  • See (pipeline bridge) - Rumford, Maine, USA. The pipelines were constructed as part of the same project.
