History and construction of the bridge

Map of the Muller Bridge and South Hadley Falls Interchange Project; constructed in 1958-1959 for $3 million ($26.8 million in 2019 USD), the highway system was also created as a support route for the then-proposed Interstate 91[2]

The bridge was constructed in 1958 as part of a new bypass of U.S. Route 202 (Purple Heart Drive). The bypass was built in anticipation of increased traffic through downtown Holyoke heading towards South Hadley from Interstate 91, which was under construction at the time. Prior to the construction of the bridge, Route 202 used the nearby South Hadley Falls bridge (Vietnam Memorial Bridge) to cross the Connecticut River.

The bridge was named as a memorial to Holyoke native Joseph E. Muller, a recipient of the Medal of Honor.
