Abstract

"North by East" piece about Jim Andrews of Arundel, who has a long history of saving historic homes, but has now turned his attention to saving an old bridge, which is the one of only nine of its kind left in the United States. The structure, built in 1908, to carry Sinnott Road overthe Boston & Maine Railroad line in Biddeford, is called a boxed pony truss bridge. The Maine Department of Transportation plans to replace the bridge with a new concrete structure. The bridge is over sixty feet long and resembles a covered bridge, but is open at the top, with closed wooden sides. Andrews thinks he might use the structure to bridge a ravine behind his house.
