    Both! Built 1927, widened 1974. From the NR for the Carriage Paths, Bridges and Gatehouses of Acadia National Park:

    “This bridge was the object of a 1974 widening project that expanded the upper deck to accommodate Route 233 traffic and which received engineering awards for the division, the
    separation move made on a system of ball bearings, and the excellent reseaming with
    the newly added masonry.” #geekwentandlookeditup
