Greenwood Railroad Bridge, Post Road (U.S. Route 1) & Main Avenue over New Haven Railroad, Warwick, Kent County, RI
Significance: The Greenwood Railroad Bridge is significant as an example of the standardized approach to concrete bridge design and replacement initiated by Rhode Island Bridge Engineer Clarence L. Hussey during the 1920s, and is also significant as a well-preserved example of early twentieth-century hybridized bridge construction. The Greenwood Railroad Bridge is also evidence of the creation of, and improvements to, Rhode Island's state highway transportation system, as well as railroad-related highway improvements, brought about by the emergence of the automobile and the growth of the urban environment.
