The Canalside Railtrail Bridge, also known as the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad (Turners Falls Branch) Bridge, is a historic structure in Montague, Massachusetts. Originally built in 1880 by the Keystone Bridge Co., it spans the Connecticut River, connecting Deerfield and Montague. The bridge is part of the Canalside Rail Trail, which was completed in Spring 2008. It’s a former rail bridge of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad (Turner Falls Branch). The bridge is on the Massachusetts Historic Bridge Inventory as a "Historic Metal Truss Bridge", currently the sixth oldest metal truss bridge on the state-wide historic registry. The bridge was refurbished in 2006 to be part of the new Canalside Rail Trail.
