Projects In Development Seeking Funds: Penobscot Narrows Bridge

History of the Project and Its Funding

<<Back to Projects

The Penobscot Narrows Bridge
Over a three-year period, Richard Kane was contracted to videotape the design and construction of this spectacular cable-stayed bridge and the history of the bridge it replaced, the Waldo-Hancock Bridge.

The production was funded by the Maine Department of Transportation and Figg Engineering Group, with management by Carol Morris Communications.


Richard Kane, often climbing the tower crane to 450 feet, high above the pylons that form the primary structure, videotaped the story of the brilliant designers and engineers and the men and women who braved adverse conditions to create the bridge that links Downeast, Maine to the rest of the state.

Its claim to fame is the only bridge in the U.S. boasting an observatory, this one with an eagle eye’s view of the Penobscot Bay and Acadia National Park.

In collaboration with Northeast Historic Film, and with the participation of the Bucksport Chamber of Commerce, this project is in search of funding to be used as a marketing tool to attract visitors to the area.
