Scott Bridge

 

Longest Wooden Span in Vermont

 

This 277' bridge built in 1870 by Harrison Chamberlin consists of two king post trusses and a 166' Town lattice truss.  The latter 

was the longest wooded span in Vermont; in 1981 a concrete pier was constructed to provide support.  An earlier attempt to

strengthen the bridge with the addition of a laminated bow arch was not successful.
