Portland Running Track

Local namePortland Running Track
LocationMiddletown, Connecticut, USA

The Providence and Worcester Railroad Bridge is a swing truss bridge crossing the Connecticut River and Route 9 in Middletown, Connecticut, just south of the Arrigoni Bridge. It carried the New York and Boston Air Line Railroad over the river to Portland, Connecticut, and continues to serve Providence & Worcester Railroad customers in Portland. Since the bridge is usually left open, it may appear inactive. However, trains regularly cross the river carrying paper products and demolition debris. In 2017, a train that had just crossed the bridge derailed on the Middletown side near Johnson Street; no injuries were reported.The bridge was featured prominently in the video for the 1993 Billy Joel hit "The River of Dreams". Joel and three backup singers appear throughout the video standing on the western span of the bridge, with the open center section of the bridge behind them.
