1888Named for U.S. President Grover Cleveland of N.J., it replaced an 1840's wooden bridge that served the extensive timber industry in the Ramapo Mountains. Constructed by the Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn., the major iron bridge builders of the northeast, it is one of two Ramapo River bridges which survived the record flood of 1903. Repaired in 1923 and historically restored by the County in 1983, it is the oldest of its type by this builder in New Jersey. The lenticular truss design is also called "Bowstring" or "Pumpkinseed" because of its profile. The Cleveland Bridge is the County's only functioning wood-decked traffic bridge.
