Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT WATERBURY, CONN. l I iHIS BRIDGE is without doubt the heaviest iron highway bridge in the New England States. e) j^b The bridge spans the Naugatuck River on Bank Street, in the city of Waterbury, Conn., and consists of one span of 175 feet, having a roadway 27 feet wide in the clear, and two sidewalks, each nine feet wide in the clear. The cut on the opposite page gives a good idea of the appearance of the bridge, but, owing to the fact that the street crosses the river on a slight angle, the bridge does not present as good an appearance as though made perfectly square. The roadway of the bridge is provided with iron joists and asphalt pavement. The bridge is crossed by a line of street cars, which run directly through the center of the roadway—a wise provision in bridges with very wide roadways, but a very unwise provision where the roadways are narrow, as in the latter case the railroad tracks should run near the outside of the roadway. This bridge replaces an old iron arch bridge which had been built about ten years—it being taken down because it was too light and too narrow to accommodate the very heavy traffic. Waterbury is one of the largest manufacturing cities in Connecticut, and the centre of the brass industry. With two rivers flowing entirely through the city, and with large railroad connections, there are probably more spans of iron bridge in the city of Waterbury than in any city of its size in this country. We have built for the city and town of Waterbury, and for the railroad companies, in Waterbury over 40 spans of iron bridge in the last ten years, and any parties desiring to see all the different kinds of iron bridges, from the simple short span of beam bridge (shown at the bottom of page 40) to the heaviest iron truss railroad bridges, can find both of these extremes and all intermediates at Waterbury.
