The Starr Mill Road Bridge is a historic bridge in Middletown, Connecticut. It is a single span Warren through truss bridge, spanning the Coginchaug River near the Starr Mill complex on the west bank of the river. Beverly Heights Road approaches the bridge from the west, and on the eastern side of the bridge, Middlefield Street follows the bank of the Coginchaug River. The bridge is closed to vehicular traffic. The bridge is 46 feet (14 m) long with a roadway 14 feet (4.3 m) wide, and stands about 12 feet (3.7 m) above the river on concrete abutments, which were poured over rubble abutments of earlier bridges. The bridge was constructed in 1927 by the Berlin Construction Company, one of Connecticut's leading bridge makers of the early 20th century.[2]

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.[1]
