Bridge Documentation

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

This is a short but heavy-built pony truss. It retains good historic integrity aside from replacement of the floor beams. The Historic Bridge Inventory listed Snook and Sons as the builder. This might refer to a firm that was known for building design and architecture. If so, names associated with the company were John B. Snook Curtis Pendleton Snook. Some sources list the company name as J. B. Snook and Sons.

Information and Findings From New Jersey's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The skewed 3-panel Warren with verticals riveted pony truss bridge bears on random ashlar abutments with wingwalls. The abutments have concrete caps. The upper railing is pipe, and the lower is welded channel. No welded repairs are apparent. Although well preserved, the bridge exhibits no distinctive details and is just a representative example of a well-represented local type. One of over 25 Warren pony truss bridges in the county, it is not historically or technologically distinguished.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries one lane of a lightly traveled country road over a minor stream. It is located in a wooded rural setting with sparse housing.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
