New life for Marshfield farm bridge

Print More

A bridge to nowhere that has been sitting in a Vermont field for nearly five years is being renovated and returned to its original site.

The 119-year-old Martin Bridge was plunked down in Marshfield so it wouldn’t fall into a river. When the work is complete this spring, the covered bridge will be back over the Winooski River, where it served farmers for nearly a century.

The restoration project includes turning the spot into a park of sorts, with a parking lot and trails connecting to an old railroad bed that is now used by hikers and bikers.
