Check Out This Video of Ice Falling Off The Penobscot Narrows Bridge-Scary [video]

The Penobscot Narrows Bridge is closed because of falling ice. You know, it’s that big bridge near Fort Knox. Ice coming off of that will do some damage. So, MDOT shut it down for now. The bridge connects Bucksport and Prospect. MDOT said most of the ice is off the guide wires, but they will decided in the morning if it needs more time or if it can reopen. Check out the video from WLBZ in Bangor. It has the sighs and sounds of the ice falling. Chilling in more ways than one.

If you have never seen the Penobscot Narrows Bridge up close, it is worth a drive. It is an interesting place. The bridge has the Penobscot Narrows Observatory which is open during the late spring, summer and early fall. And the views are AMAZING. After all it is the tallest bridge observatory in the world! But according to the Maine.gov website for there is more to be impressed with: 

  • The Penobscot Narrows Bridge is the only bridge observatory in the United States, and only one of four bridge observatories in the world.
  • The bridge spans 2,120 feet from the east shore to the west shore, and there is 135 feet between the water and the bridge’s travel surface.
  • The top of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge is 447 feet tall. The observatory is 420 feet above the river and offers 360 degree views of the surrounding area.
