Conrail - Railroad Hill Street Bridge

Map 

Street View 

Description 

Curved trestle over the MNCR Waterbury Branch and Railroad Hill Street. Was originally part of the Meriden, Waterbury, and Connecticut River RR, which was mostly abandoned in 1924 except for a portion in Meriden and the section from Scovill Brass in Waterbury (now Brass Mill Center Mall) to Bank Street Junction. Last used in the early 1980s as the CR Dublin Street Industrial Track. The MW&CR used a long system of trestles to exit the Naugatuck valley, and given the recent demolition of much of the structure east of here this bridge may be threatened as well.
