High Street Bridge
This bridge was relocated to Millbury as part of the Blackstone River Bikeway project in 2001.
From the MHC listing:
"Although the trusses of this bridge have been repaired and slightly altered (the addition of sub-verticals in the end panels) this bridge is unique among the dozen Massachusetts examples of this type in its use of the lighter weight T-section chord members instead of the heavier box section chords."
