Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge is one of two historic truss bridges within sight of each other, but of vastly different eras on this road, the other one is the eastern western bridge.

1902 was the construction date given for this bridge. The accuracy of this date is not known, this would make the bridge an early example of its type. Stylistically, the bridge has the appearance of a ca. 1915 bridge.

During documentation by HistoricBridges.org, the bridge was being repainted.

Information and Findings From New Jersey's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The rivet-connected Warren pony truss bridge is supported on one ashlar abutment with a concrete cap and one concrete abutment. Many of the original riveted members have been strengthened with the addition of welded plates, but not the top chord. The bottom chord has been strengthened with an additional angle section. Outriggers have been welded to the chords and at the midpoint of the verticals. The bridge is a relatively well-represented type, and it has been significantly altered.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge is located in a wooded area that is sparsely developed. It carries a one-lane road over an intermittent stream that is a branch of Paulins Kill. Another pony truss bridge (2101313) is located 100' to the north, carrying the same one-lane road over Paulins Kill.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
