Connecticut River Bridge

blank dot

The Turners Falls–Gill Bridge, also known as the Gill–Montague Bridge, is a steel deck truss bridge that crosses the Connecticut River in Massachusetts. It connects the Town of Gill with the village of Turners Falls in the Town of Montague. The bridge carries both automobile and pedestrian traffic. Before the bridge was constructed, a ferry known as "Bissel’s Ferry”"operated approximately a quarter-mile upriver from this site. The current structure began construction on May 17, 1937, and was completed in September 1938. The bridge underwent a major renovation project from 2010 to 2014. It is historically significant for its art deco details and its construction with federal Depression relief programs and funding.
