Per The Waterbury Record, November 16, 1927, "Two spans of the new iron bridge across the Winooski on South Main Street went out when the three mile bridge between Middlesex and Waterbury came down the river and hit it." Per State of Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, Historic Sites & Structures Survey, the Three Mile Bridge covered bridge version present before the 1927 flood had two spans of unequal length. Another article stated that the bridge was built before 1869.
