Arrigoni Bridge

The route from Newark to Boston is only 360 kilometres (225 miles), but runs through 5 states:
New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts
This is comparable if you drive from Eindhoven to Metz in Europe and travel through the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and France.

For this day we had planned a longer stopover in Providence. Along the way we also passed a number of interesting bridges that fascinate me especially as a former director of the department for architectural and civil engineering of a University of Applied Sciences .

The Arrigoni Bridge, also known locally as the Portland Bridge is a bridge across the Connecticut River, connecting Middletown Connecticut to Portland, Connecticut.
The bridge was opened in 1938.
The bridge has two separate steel arches with a span of 600m each. It is a so-called through arch bridge, in which the basis of the bridge is under the road deck and the arch construction mainly above.
