This bridge was relocated here in 1950 where it replaced a timber truss bridge. The Historic Bridge Inventory appears to be incorrect in saying that the outriggers are alterations because these are riveted and appear to be original construction. Further, outriggers were common as original details on pony trusses composed of lightweight riveted angles such as seen on this bridge.
Information and Findings From New Jersey's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The riveted 4-panel Warren with verticals pony truss bridge was moved to this location ca. 1950, replacing a wooden truss span. Its original location is not documented. It is supported on ashlar abutments with wingwalls that date from an earlier span. A concrete collar has been added to the south abutment. The guide railings and outriggers are alterations. The bridge is not unusual in design nor is it historically noteworthy. It is a representative example of a common type.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries one lane of a lightly traveled country road over a tributary of the Wickecheoke Creek. It is located in a wooded rural setting. The south approach of the bridge at the intersection with Sam Levine Road bends sharply.
