This bridge was part of the original Springfield Terminal Railway route between Springfield VT and Charlestown, NH. It was designed to carry the interuban light rail and a single lane of highway traffic. Passenger operation ceased in 1947; electric freight train operation was replaced by diesel in November 1956, and all rail service over this bridge ceased after the acquisition of the line by Guilford Tansportation in 1983.
