The integrity and strength of the Aiken Street Bridge, spanning the Merrimack River and uniting the two halves of the city of Lowell, MA into one, cannot be denied. To say they don’t make them like this intricately trussed structure, any more, would not only be an understatement, but also a fact, as it remains one of the oldest and longest bridges of its type in the country. With revitalized mill buildings, soaring steeples and rushing water as a backdrop for its sweeping arches of steel and rivets the size of silver dollars, this bridge displays a timeless beauty that citizens and visitors to the Mill City have admired since 1883. From horse drawn wagons, to models-T’s, delivery trucks to hybrid cars- vehicles of all kinds have depended on this majestic bridge to carry people, goods and services to where they need to go.
Since its incorporation in 1836, the city of Lowell has been a stage for the triumphs as well as the struggles of both workers and entrepreneurs. From the industrial revolution of the early and mid- 19th century through the Mill City’s re-birth as a national park and now the home of a prolific University on the verge of an amazing expansion. Re-inventing itself is an important part of our city’s success. And like the Aiken Street Bridge, it’s a testament to the strength and integrity of this city’s core structure that allows it to honor the past while embracing the future.
