Notes
Survey number HAER VT-17
Building/structure dates: 1928 initial construction
Significance: The bridge is significant as a representative example of the bridges built following the flood of 1927, in which over 1250 of Vermont's bridges were destroyed. The flood was a major episode in Vermont's 20th-century history. The resulting engineering effort included the extensive use of standardized design and economical construction by which the State was able to rebuild a large number of bridges very quickly. This bridge is eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.
