Bridge Documentation

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

This bridge is an outstanding representative example of a bridge that (despite statements to the contrary by the historic bridge survey) isn't a particularly common bridge type: a concrete encased steel through girder. This particular example stands out for its lack of alteration and good physical condition as well.

Information and Findings From New Jersey's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 3-span fully encased thru girder with floor beams bridge is supported on concrete abutments and concrete piers. There is a slight camber to the span. A standard-design metal railing with concrete posts encloses the cantilevered sidewalk. A representative example of a common state design and bridge type , the span is not technologically or historically distinguished.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a busy 2-lane with shoulders state highway over the South Branch of the Raritan River. It is located adjacent to the wellpreserved 19th-century village of Clinton on the bypass road. The south end is next to a small park and the Clinton House, a restored 19th century inn. It is located on old NJ 9, the original Clinton bypass.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
