Heineberg Bridge (Old)

The images currently shown on this page are of the "high bridge" from South Burlington to Colchester, near the present Interstate 89 Bridge over the Winooski River and Burlington International Airport, not the Heineberg that connected the Mallett's Bay area to Burlington's "New North End"and was much nearer the mouth of the Winooski. Enclosed is a correct image of the 'new' Heineberg Steel Bridge being opened in 1936. It has since been replaced by the circ. highway bridge.

This long gone bridge indirectly made the local news...evidently the south abutment was still extant, but it collapsed on 5/22/16 with a landslide that is threatening a home.
