Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT HIGHGATE CENTER, VERMONT. I I IHE BRIDGE at Highgate Center, Vt, consists of one span of 215 feet, and one span of 80 feet, with a roadway 20 feet in the clear, and ® I © is shown by the cut on the opposite page. The State of Vermont has lately passed a law whereby towns excessively burdened with roads and bridges can, under certain restrictions, apply to the State and receive financial aid. The bridge here shown was built by a commissioner appointed by the State under this law, and is the longest single span of iron highway bridge in the State of Vermont. At the point where it crosses the Missisquoi River the banks are very high and rocky—the distance from the roadway to the bed of the stream being 70 feet. No more beautiful sight can be imagined than this location where the boiling, bubbling, surging water rushes down through the narrow channels with a force which is almost irresistable, and with a roar which prevents ordinary conversation being carried on near the bridge. This bridge replaces what was probably the best built wooden highway bridge in the New England States. Built of first growth Vermont pine, it stood in this location for a long series of years, but, finally, like all wooden bridges, had to give way for iron. The iron bridge adds very much to the beauty of the surroundings, while the old wooden bridge detracted from the beautiful scenery. Notice that the bridge is provided on each side with a 16-inch lattice railing, and below this one line of iron pipe, which form a very effectual barricade for school children or persons who are apt to be timid when crossing a bridge at such a great height.
