Shetucket River Deck-Truss Bridge, Spanning Shetucket River at Route 169, Norwich, New London County, CT
Significance: The bridge is significant as a representative example of standard 20th-century truss construction. Typical features of the period include the Pratt-truss design, concrete-slab deck, and the use of rolled I-beams. The railing design suggests an Art Deco stylistic influence. The bridge also has historical significance: it was one of a group of Connecticut bridges financed by federal public-works funds following natural disasters in 1936 and 1938.
