Historic Bridge Inventory

Caveats & Codes


This list is a work in progress. It does not contain all of the currently known historic bridges within the Commonwealth, and some listed bridges likely have been removed since being listed. While it is Highway's intent to update this list periodically, it should never be taken as the last word regarding the current status of any particular bridge.

Criteria for Inclusion in the Highway Historic Bridges List:


  1. The bridge must be listed in Highway's computerized statewide bridge database and, therefore, must possess a Highway Bridge Department Number (BDEPT).
    1. [Highway's statewide bridge database is intended to include all of those bridge/culvert structures in Massachusetts that carry, or pass over, a highway open to the public. The database also includes selected railroad bridges not involving highways, particularly those owned by other state agencies and authorities, and those on which Highway or Federal Highway Administration funds have been expended.]
  2. Highway must possess evidence that the bridge has been individually listed in, or has been found eligible for individual listing in, the National Register of Historic Places. Bridges that have been found to be contributing elements within National Register-listed or -eligible historic districts, but that do not appear to possess characteristics that would qualify them for individual listing in the National Register, are NOT included in the list.
