Abstract

A group of residents of Brunswick and Topsham are fighting to save the historic but rusty steel bridge that separates the twin towns. Due to its poor condition, the Maine Department of Transportation has slated the bridge for demolition. Friends of the Frank J. Wood bridge are waging a battle to rehabilitate the bridge rather than replace it due to its aesthetics and significance as a historic landmark.
