The bridge is open to traffic.
A ten-foot stone bridge...I would have loved to play on this as a kid. Shame it's gone.
The map marker on this bridge shows it over Pancho's and Gringo's which is incorrect. I presume you mean the stone arch bridge by the Craft Center and it was not built in the year you have listed. It was built in 1880.
As you look at it, this suggests what should be a relatively peaceful section of the course. The skidmarks, though, appear to tell another story.
I used to live in Meriden, CT. As I recall, this bridge is historic in that it may have been the very first "skew arch" bridge in the United States, if not the world. Few people know of this obscure tidbit. Worth looking into.
Just a pinned Pratt with vertical endposts...but it is a very unique span.
A very interesting bridge, and a great add to the site. I am not sure if it is a true bedstead or if it just has vertical endposts however.
Bridge location is incorrect. It is actually on RT 162 in the center of Milford, right outside the Stone Barn Restuarant.
Length info needs updating; tunnel is approximately 1200 feet long: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heroes_Tunnel
I presume this bridge is demolished: http://www.ctpost.com/news/article/Congress-Street-bridge-demolition-starts-but-396782.php

Layla.......you got us on our knees...........
Another satified customer. [eyeroll thingy]
THIS HAS NOT HELPED ME AT ALL!!!! >:O
I would like information on how much the bridge cost to build and about the war placks that were put there? And also why this bridge is being neglected? Please I have been trying to get information on this bridge for 5 years. Hope someone can help me. Thank you Dolly Petrin
This bridge may be gone. I haven't been on site to verify it, but it doesn't show up on Google Earth.
It's not closed to traffic. It was closed for about a year while the town tried to put in place a contract for an upgrade and repair that would preserve the bridge's historic look (they wanted to raise the bridge and replace the piers, but re-use the old stone arch as a sort of facade), but they couldn't get any contractor to bid on the specifications they had written. So they did a quick temporary reinforcement to make it safe for traffic, and the bridge is now open, for the forseeable future.
It's a very small bridge, generally unnoticed by drivers. I commute over it by bicycle most days, so I get a better look at it, but there's not really much to see.
I have a brass Pin of the Hartford Bridge Oct. 6,7,8, 1908. The front has a chip of stone. The reverse states " Chip from Stone in Bridge Guaranteed by Noble & Westbrook Hartford, Conn.
Any idea of value?
Name: Arrigoni Bridge
Won an award for its looks.
Name: East Haddam Bridge
If this is the bridge I think it is, just downstream from the Arrigoni Bridge, it's NOT open to traffic. On Wikipedia, it's known as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Providence_%26_Worcester_railroad_bridge
