"Sunday River Bridge," Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The Sunday River Bridge, also known locally as the Artists Bridge, is a historic covered bridge in Newry, Maine. It is located northeast of the Sunday River Ski Resort, adjacent to the crossing of the Sunday River by Sunday River Road, which the bridge formerly carried. Built in 1872, it is one of Maine's few surviving 19th-century covered bridges. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. The Sunday River Bridge is a Paddleford truss bridge spanning the Sunday River in western Newry, Maine, a small town in western Oxford County. It is 100 feet (30 m) long and 20 feet (6.1 m) wide, with a total height of 22 feet (6.7 m), and rests on cut granite abutments. Its internal clearance is 14 feet (4.3 m) in height and 17 feet (5.2 m) in width. The trusses consist of a series of crossed braces between King posts. It has an extended gable roof clad in wood shingles. The sides are finished in vertical boarding for about half their height, and the ends are boarded from the gable down to the tops of the portals.
