The Norwottuck Rail Trail Bridge, also known as the Northampton Lattice Truss Bridge, is a former crossing of the Boston and Maine Railroad over the Connecticut River in western Massachusetts. It connects the towns of Northampton and Hadley and is currently used for bicycle and foot traffic as part of the Norwottuck Rail Trail. The bridge is an eight-span steel lattice truss bridge and crosses Elwell Island in the middle of the river. It was built by the R. F. Hawkins Ironworks Company. The bridge was redesigned by Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. of Watertown, rebuilt by MassHighway, and opened in 1992 to bicycle and foot traffic.
