Notes
Survey number HAER CT-45
Significance: West Main Street Bridge is significant as part of a locally-sponsored effort undertaken between 1917 and 1929 to create an attractively landscaped setting for the public buildings in the town center. Illustrating a typical form of its day, the small steel-beam concrete-clad highway bridge, it also gains significance because of its designer, Vincent B. Clarke, a regionally prominent civil engineer.
