Connecticut River Bridge

blank dot

The Warehouse Point Railroad Bridge is a girder bridge with a truss main span that crosses the Connecticut River between Enfield and Suffield, Connecticut. It carries Amtrak’s New Haven-Springfield Line. The bridge has spaces for two tracks, but only one is connected to the mainline. It is one of a few iron bridges erected in the United States before the end of the American Civil War. A wooden Howe truss railroad bridge was originally constructed at this site by the Hartford and Springfield Railroad Company in 1843. In 1865-66, a new bridge, designed by James Laurie, was constructed to replace the old one. The bridge was built in sections in England and shipped to the United States, where the pieces were then riveted together on site. The bridge was rebuilt and double-tracked in 1903-04. In mid-2023, Amtrak applied for a federal grant to replace the bridge.
