The Bridges of Derby, Connecticut

Derby, Connecticut is a city blessed to have not one, but two rivers running through it. Those rivers (Housatonic and Naugatuck) which run into Long Island Sound have played - and continue to play - a major role in the history of the city. Currently, there are four bridges for consumer traffic and two railroad trestles in use. Click on each of the images to see a larger image as well as a more realistic representation. And if you really want to see the bridges up close, take a stroll on Derby's spectacular new Greenway which links all of the bridges together.
