Lowes Bridge, Guilford-Sangerville, Maine

This bridge, built in 1857, was washed away by the flood of April 1, 1987. A modern covered bridge, patterned after the original, was built on the original abutments in 1990. The replacement was built to have a larger load-capacity and was raised in order
to prevent future flood damage.

The bridge has a clear span of 120 feet over the Piscataquis River and is located just off Route 15, south of Guilford Village
