The Interstate 84 bridge over the Connecticut River in Hartford, also known as the Bulkeley Bridge, is a significant architectural and historical landmark. This stone arch bridge, composed of nine spans, was built around 1873 by the Hartford, Providence and Fishkill Railroad. It carries Interstate 84, U.S. Route 6, and U.S. Route 44, connecting Hartford to East Hartford. As of 2005, the bridge carried an average daily traffic of 142,500 cars. Notably, it is one of the oldest bridges still in use in the Interstate Highway System and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993 due to its historical, architectural, and engineering significance.
