One of the very few Bascule bridges in Connecticut. A great view to see it being operated. Nice to walk through downtown Mystic.

This bridge is very interesting and well worth watching it go up as boats pass underneath. It takes approximately 5 minutes or the bridge to operate. I believe it is well worth watching.

Any other time the bridge is a sightseeing marvel, but road construction has made a snarled traffic mess of the downtown area.

One may question why it would be interesting to see a bridge. This unique bridge is so unique and defines the village, the traffic flow, and the boat flow. We have experienced the bridge while in a car, on foot, and by boat. Each experience is different and each drove home how unique this bridge is.

The bridge is currently under repair.
