I-91 Brattleboro Bridge

Brattleboro, Vermont

Owner: Vermont Agency of Transportation

Design / Construction Engineering and Inspection: FIGG

The I-91 Brattleboro Bridge is a three-span, 1,036’ long arching concrete bridge over the West River built utilizing balanced cantilever construction. Standing 90’ above the scenic valley, the 515’ main span forms an open gateway anchored by curving, cathedral piers. This postcard-worthy bridge features viewing platforms for pedestrians, hikers, and visitors at the base of each pier overlooking the West River and mountainous valley. True to its theme, “A Bridge to Nature,” every detail of the uniquely shaped superstructure, curving piers, viewing platforms, and railings complements the natural landscape.
