description

Summary

Significance: Pequonnock River Bridge is a component of the Merritt Parkway, a landscaped limited-access highway designed and built in the 1930s. The parkway was regarded as a model in its day, in large part because of the architectural qualities of its more than 60 bridges. As a span that carries the parkway over an intersecting feature, this bridge is one of the more simply detailed structures.
