This bridge is a three span Parker truss bridge, with an
additional through truss span, and numerous deck
plate girder approach spans.
There are three railroad bridges at this general location. One other one is visible in the background in the photos
of this bridge, which is the New Jersey Central Railroad Bridge, and there is
third bridge directly behind this bridge as well, the Lehigh Valley Railroad
Bridge. Time and location restraints did not allow
HistoricBridges.org the time to document the other bridges. However,
HAER did document one of the other bridges, the Lehigh Valley Railroad
Bridge and this documentation is presented in the links above. The HAER documentation describes the
local railroad competition that led to two of the railroad bridges in this area,
the Lehigh Valley Railroad and the Central Railroad of New Jersey.
