Penobscot Narrows Observatory

On top of a 437’ suspension bridge column sits an observatory tower with 360 degree views of the Penobscot River and surrounding area. This is the tallest public bridge observatory in the world. Visitors take a high speed one stop elevator to the top for their viewing pleasure.

Sparhawk Group worked with the Maine Department of Transportation and Maine Department of Conservation on monitoring the internal environmental conditions of the elevator tower to ensure proper temperature and humidity control. Monitoring was conducted by Sparhawk Group in various locations throughout the tower. The data was routinely downloaded and analyzed for trending information that will allow the Sparhawk Group to further enhance the current environmental conditions of the tower.
