Product Description

The last covered railroad bridge to see traffic, the Fisher Covered Railroad Bridge was built by the Boston and Maine Railroad to carry the St. Johnsbury and Lamoille County Railroad over the Lamoille River. Threatened with replacement in the 1960’s with a steel truss design in order to support heavier loads, the bridge was instead strengthened by placing four steel girders under the bridge and building a pier in the middle of the river. The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, and is accessible from Vermont Route 15.
