Discussion of Bridge
The two span elliptical reinforced concrete deck arch bridge is finished with scored spandrel walls and concrete paneled parapets, one section of which has been replaced with beam guide railing. The bridge is well-proportioned, but it is not an early or technologically significant example of its type. It is not innovative or historically noteworthy. It is also not an early example of the bridge type.

The bridge carries a 2-lane street and sidewalks over the South Branch of the Raritan River. It is located in a suburban setting, adjacent to a city park and baseball field. An industrial site, the historically significant Taylor-Wharton Foundry is nearby.
