Built 1938 to replace an 1872 Bowstring truss on Main Street that was damaged in a flood. Provided the added benefit of eliminating a dangerous railroad grade crossing. The rigid frame railroad span was replaced in 2012 to allow for increased clearances and as of 2014 the ramp down to the MassDOT garage is undergoing significant work.
