Description 

Haunched deck plate girder bridge over Connolly Parkway on the former NYNH&H Canal Line, now the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail/East Coast Greenway. Ballasted concrete deck. Likely constructed in or around 1940 based on the build date of the nearby Connolly Parkway bridge over the Mill River and comparing aerial imagery.
