The Turn-of-River Bridge, also known as Old North Stamford Road Bridge, is a lenticular pony truss bridge built by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company in 1892. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]

The bridge uses the design patented by William O. Douglas in 1878 for a lens-type truss bridge. It brings the Old Stamford Road across Rippowam River.[2]
