Cuttingsville Bridge, Spanning Mill River at State Route 103, Shrewsbury, Rutland County, VT

 
 
description

Summary

Significance: The bridge is significant as a representative example of the bridges built following the flood of 1927, in which over 1250 of Vermont's bridges were destroyed. The flood was a major episode in Vermont's 20th-century history. The resulting engineering effort included the extensive use of standardized design and economical construction by which the State was able to rebuild a large number of bridges very quickly. The American Bridge Company which dominated the Vermont bridge market prior to the flood, retained its dominance by being the more productive of the two major providers of flood-era bridges. This bridge is eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.
