Naubuc Avenue Bridge
Posted March 10, 2009, by John Cavilia (john [dot] cavilia [at] gmail [dot] com)

It's not closed to traffic. It was closed for about a year while the town tried to put in place a contract for an upgrade and repair that would preserve the bridge's historic look (they wanted to raise the bridge and replace the piers, but re-use the old stone arch as a sort of facade), but they couldn't get any contractor to bid on the specifications they had written. So they did a quick temporary reinforcement to make it safe for traffic, and the bridge is now open, for the forseeable future.

It's a very small bridge, generally unnoticed by drivers. I commute over it by bicycle most days, so I get a better look at it, but there's not really much to see.
