Significance: Black Bridge is significant as a representative 20th-century steel-truss highway bridge. Its Warren-truss design, the relatively heavy proportions of its members, and its concrete-slab deck reflect the standardization of bridge engineering in that period, as well as the demands of ever-increasing motor-vehicle usage. Black Bridge also has historical interest as part of the reconstruction that followed the disastrous flood of March 1936, an event that damaged or destroyed hundred of bridges throughout New England.
