North End Bridge

Connecticut River Bridge

blank dot

The North End Bridge, located in Springfield, Massachusetts, is a significant structure that spans the Connecticut River. It was the second road bridge to be built across the Connecticut River in Springfield, opening in 1877. The bridge was particularly significant to West Springfield residents as it directly connected downtown West Springfield to the north end of Springfield and, more importantly at the time, Springfield’s railroad station. In 1923, the original bridge caught fire and was completely destroyed. Two years later, a new bridge was completed and it remains in use today, carrying US Route 20, the longest road in America, over the Connecticut River.
