Significance: The history of the Woronoco Bridge is closely associated with the growth of the Woronoco Mills and the surrounding company town. The Woronoco Bridge is a good example of a relatively standard design for concrete arch bridges built in the early-twentieth century. The bridge is one of the least-altered of eight open-spandrel, ribbed-arch type concrete bridges under Massachusetts Department of Public Works purview.
