This bridge was demolished and replaced in 2016!

This bridge was just a short distance from an old metal truss bridge that had been damaged by an overweight truck and was demolished by the time HistoricBridges.org did a field visit. As part of that project this bridge was also replaced. This bridge was altered, and it is not clear if it was a true stone arch bridge or was a concrete arch with stone facing. If it was a concrete bridge, the 1941 date might be when the bridge was originally built, however if it was a true stone arch bridge the 1941 date likely refers to the alteration date.

One of the parapet walls had already been demolished when this bridge was photographed. The plaque was also removed.

Information and Findings From New Jersey's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

According to county records, the now corrugated steel-lined arches of the 3-span bridge are concrete lined. The original date of construction is not known, nor is it known if the spans are stone or concrete arches. 1941 may well be the date of reconstruction. The structure, which has larger arches flanking the central arch, is finished with coursed ashlar spandrel walls and ringstones. The undocumented span is not known to be historically or technologically distinguished. No plans survive.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries two lanes of a moderately traveled county road over a minor stream. The setting is wooded and rural with sparse housing. A marker identifies the adjacent structure as the 1830 tavern built to replace the 1750 log Kingswood Tavern located on the same site. The bridge is contiguous to a pony truss span (1000011) that crosses the main channel of the stream.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
