Janice Peaselee Bridge, Maidstone

Connecticut River Bridge

blank dot

The Janice Peaslee Bridge, formerly known as the Maidstone-Stratford Hollow Bridge, is a pin-connected steel & wrought iron Pratt through truss bridge that crosses the Connecticut River between Stratford, New Hampshire and Maidstone, Vermont. The bridge was originally completed in 1893 by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company, East Berlin, Connecticut. It was closed "temporarily" in 1990 for safety reasons. Due to the perseverance of Vermont State Representative Janice L. Peaslee, it underwent a total rebuild which was completed in 2005. In order to facilitate reconstruction of the abutments, the bridge was placed on land for repairs while the foundations were rebuilt and a new approach was created. Since the bridge was resurrected as a result of Janice Peaslee’s efforts, the bridge was renamed in her honor in 2006. The bridge was been closed in July 2023 due to storm damage, but was reopened in early 2024.
