Significance: The bridge is significant as a representative example of the type of bridges built following the flood of 1927, in which over 1,250 bridges in Vermont were destroyed. The flood was a major episode in Vermont's twentieth century history. The resulting engineering effort included the extensive use of standardized design and economical contribution by which the State was able to rebuild a large number of bridges very quickly. The Berlin Construction Company was one of two major providers of flood-era bridges. This bridge is eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.
