The Westford Bridge was built in 1838 to serve the never completed Vermont Market Road. Bypassed by a concrete bridge in 1965, the bridge deteriorated and was in dange of collapse before the community came to the rescue in 1987 and hired Milton Graton to restore it. Work was completed in July 2001.

Our thanks to the Town of Westford for allowing the posting of the Vermont Covered Bridge Society Welcome patch. For more information about the Westford area visit their website at www.westfordvt.us.
