Project Fun Facts

  • This bridge is the sole survivor of four suspension aqueducts built by John A. Roebling, who later designed the Brooklyn Bridge. Originally built in 1848 to carry the Delaware and Hudson Canal across the Delaware River, it was later converted to a vehicular bridge after the demise of the canal.
