The Hampden County Memorial Bridge, often referred to as the Springfield Memorial Bridge, is a reinforced-concrete arch bridge that spans the Connecticut River between Springfield and West Springfield, Massachusetts. Constructed in 1922, it carries pedestrian and vehicular traffic along Massachusetts Route 147. The bridge’s longest ribs have a center-to-center span of 209 feet and a rise of 29.71 feet. The bridge was designed by Fay Spofford & Thorndike, with Haven & Hoyt, architects. It was refurbished in 1992, with Fay Spofford & Thorndike again involved. The Memorial Bridge is a testament to the advancements in bridge construction and design, and it continues to serve as a vital link across the Connecticut River.
