Fitch’s Bridge

A bridge to the past

Groton, Massachusetts

Built in the early days of the 20th century, the original Fitch’s Bridge had been closed for nearly 45 years. Lack of structural integrity. The Town of Groton needed a replacement, something that would link their extensive trail system and provide a long service life.

The new Fitch’s Bridge is a beautifully detailed structure, designed with history in mind to be emblematic of industrial-style steel truss bridge construction. Accommodating pedestrians, bicyclists, runners, and equestrians, the new 126-foot-long bridge connects to the Groton trail system. The project also included modifying two historic stone masonry abutments to serve the new bridge superstructure.

With our careful selection of maintenance-free materials, the team delivered a bridge that would last—one that pays homage to the history of the river crossing.
