Connecticut River Bridge

blank dot

The Willimansett Bridge is a steel truss bridge that spans the Connecticut River, connecting Chicopee and Holyoke in Massachusetts. It carries Massachusetts state routes 116 and 141. The bridge was built in 1891 by Richard F. Hawkins Ironworks (superstructure) and Wright Lyons and Company (substructure) with Edward S. Shaw as engineer. In 2011, a refurbishment project began, which included bridge deck replacement, sidewalk replacement, bridge rail replacement, substructure repairs, cleaning & painting of structural steel. Despite a delay due to the original contractor going bankrupt, the bridge re-opened on June 12, 2011.
