One of three surviving covered bridges in Connecticut -- the Comstock Bridge -- stands along an old alignment of the road that later became Route 16. It's on the Salmon River at the East Hampton - Colchester town line, is open to the public (walkers only), and is easily accessible from Route 16.
We're not exactly sure which Comstock the bridge is named after; but it's likely not this one.
"Route 16" is the title of a 1981 arcade game (see screenshot). I have to say I can't see the resemblance.
