Bridge Documentation

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

The date of construction for this bridge is unknown. It may date to the 1920s or 1930s. It is a traditional riveted truss bridge. In this county, it stands out for its lack of alteration to its trusses. The bridge is in good condition with the minor exception of the cover plate pack rust ripples which should have been addressed when the bridge was last repainted. These could have been removed by pneumatic hammering methods.

Repairs occurred to the bridge in 1969, 1977.

Information and Findings From New Jersey's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 2-span Warren with verticals pony truss bridge is of riveted construction. Spans have 4 panels each. The east abutment is stone and the west abutment and pier are concrete dating from 1969. The wide profile floorbeams appear to be original and are attached with some square-nut bolts. This bridge of undocumented age replaced an 1899 Pratt pony truss by the WIBC. This bridge is exhibits no distinctive construction details. It is an undistinguished example of what is a common local type.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries one lane of a lightly travelled country road over a minor stream in a wooded rural setting. It is near an early 19th century farmstead and open fields.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
