    My guess would be the flood of March, 1936 took out the prior bridge. One of the worst floods in the history of Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.

    Looks like it's been a footbridge since at least the 1940s; the road connection is severed in between the 1941 (1936 survey) and 1947 (1945 survey) topos.
