Between the Borough of Fair Lawn, Bergen County and the City of Paterson, Passaic County

Reflecting the need for additional river crossings as the area grew in the late 19th century, the contract for the original bridge was awarded in July 1890 to Riverside Bridge and Iron Works of Paterson, N.J. for $8,895. This original bridge was washed away on October 10 during the disastrous Passaic river flood of 1903. The flood destroyed practically all the bridges over the Passaic River in Bergen, Passaic, and Essex counties. In 1904, a contract for the second bridge was awarded to Cyclopean Iron Works of Jersey City, N.J. for $27,890. The second bridge, which remained in use from 1904 to 2008, was a through grider [sic] bridge with three 82' spans supported on stone abutments and concrete piers. In 2008, construction began on the third bridge which was placed in service February 2009.
