Maine Fore River Bridge Act (1951)
The act was a legislatively-referred state statute, voted onto the ballot by the Maine legislature, which described it as "An Act Relating to Combination Highway and Railroad Bridge Across Fore River."
The Fore River separated Portland and South Portland. It was originally known as Levett's River.
The 1951 ballot proposition was an attempt to generate funds with which to replace the Million Dollar Bridge over the river, which had been built in 1916. In 1993, the Casco Bay Bridge was begun to replace the older bridge.
