Significance: The bridge is an essential link between the Merritt Parkway and the Wilbur Cross Parkway. It is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as the northern terminus of the Merritt Parkway, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge has two unique engineering features: it was the longest span of open steel grid deck bridge in the U.S., and the use of T-shaped, one-leg bents was considered an innovative solution to ensure navigational clearances beneath the bridge.
