Notes
Survey number HAER CT-146
Building/structure dates: 1927 initial construction
Significance: Constructed in 1927-1929, the Yellow Mill Bridge is a rare and relatively intact example of a bascule highway bridge. Located on a site that has been bridged since the late eighteenth century, the bridge has important historical associations with the development of Bridgeport's transportation infrastructure during the early twentieth century. Cost overruns and charges of fraud during construction of the bridge created a scandal that altered the course of local politics and was a significant contributing factor in the eventual election of Mayor Jasper McLevy, one of the few Socialist party candidates ever elected to govern a city in the United States.
