Description 

From NRHP Listing:

The Depot street Bridge (Bridge No. 3788) crosses the Naugatuck River in the town of Beacon Falls. The bridge consists of two Parker through trusses with a maximum span of 207 feet. The bridge itself is approximately 45 feet wide including pedestrian walks on both sides of the structure. The bridge is located on the western end of the town of Beacon Falls and links the commercial section of town found on the east side of the river to an industrial park located on the opposite side of the river. The bridge replaces a steel and wooden bridge that initally crossed the river hi 1892. This bridge was modified from a wooden bridge that was constructed in 1856, itself replacing a wooden bridge located 300 feet downstream, originally built in 1835 and subsequently destroyed during the flood of 1855.
