Unity Bridge

World Guide Number: 37-20-17

Built in 1936, this bridge replaced an earlier structure that was located less than a mile downstream. It utilizes the standard Howe Truss and bridges Fall Creek a few miles upstream of Pengra Bridge.

A unique feature of this span is the large "picture window" on the east side that allows approaching traffic to see if the way is clear before turning onto the bridge. The window has its own shingled awning to protect drivers crossing the bridge from being blinded by the sunlight, and it also helps keep the weather out.

Since the nearby Pengra bridge is on the must see list, this handsome structure should not be overlooked. Take highway 58 to the Lowell Bridge, cross Dexter Lake on the causeway and head north two miles on the Lowell-Unity Road.
