Notes
Survey number HAER RI-45
Building/structure dates: 1894 initial construction
Significance: The Court Street Bridge is a rare example of a late 19th century steel deck truss. The bridge embodies the following distinctive characteristics of the period: Pratt design, fabrication by an independent bridge building company, and pinned connections. It is also an example of material innovation, employing steel, concrete and natural asphalt at an early period in their use. This structure, the city's first major engineering project, was built by the newly-established City of Woonsocket at a time of great civic and industrial growth. It was determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places on January 10, 1989 and is an inventoried, contributing resource of the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor (BRVNHC).
