CT: Litchfield County-West Cornwall Bridge

One of the last vehicular covered bridges in Connecticut, this iconic landmark spans 172 feet long and runs over the Housatonic River.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it still carries vehicular traffic on Connecticut Route 128. Designed by Ithiel Town, it has been in continuous service since 1864.

I have enjoyed touring several of the covered bridges in Connecticut – both vehicular or pedestrian as they make great photo ops from the inside and out! I enjoy peering out their windows to the rivers below as well.

Connecticut Covered Bridges

Some of the covered bridges- vehicular or pedestrian- I have enjoyed in Connecticut include:

  • West Cornwall Bridge, Cornwall CT- 1864, vehicular (this blog)-
  • Bull’s Bridge, Kent, CT – 1842, vehicular (blog pending)
  • Kent Falls, Kent, CT – pedestrian (refer to blog on Kent Falls in Litchfield County)
  • Southford Falls, Southbury, CT-pedestrian (refer to blog on Southford Falls in New Haven County)
  • Comstock Bridge, East Hampton, CT- pedestrian (blog pending)
  • Devil’s Hopyard Bridge, East Haddam- pedestrian (refer to blog on Devil’s Hopyard)
  • Johnsonville Village Covered Bridge, East Haddam CT- pedestrian (refer to Johnsonville blog)- NOTE: This one should be viewed by the road as its on private property but is unique as it’s a double tunnel bridge.
