Rededication May 2013

This rare multi-catenary, pedestrian only suspension bridge was designed and constructed by John A. Roebling's Sons Co. of Trenton, N.J. - the famed builders of the Brooklyn Bridge. It replaced a former vehicular bridge that consisted of four original wooden covered spans and a single steel truss replacement span. The original bridge at this location operated as a shareholder-owned toll crossing for 75 years before being freed of tolls in 1932.Superstructure constructed - 1947Superstructure rehabilitated - 2013
