Spanning Water and Time: The Delaware River Bridges from the Estuary to the Water Gap


Tuesday April 12, 2022
7:00 PM

Bridges have spanned the Delaware River between New Jersey and Pennsylvania for more than 200 years. The fresh-water section of the river between the two states is particularly interesting, with some of the bridge crossings playing an important role in the nation’s transportation legacy. The history of the Delaware River’s NJ-PA freshwater bridges includes early wooden structures, floods, fires, private stock-issuing companies, railroad barons, a trolley line, a free-bridges movement, and a new dual-span bridge with an attached shared-use path for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Joe Donnelly, Deputy Executive Director of the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, will talk about the area’s Delaware River bridges – from the Delaware Water Gap to Trenton – with slides of historic photographs, news items, documents, and maps. 90 minutes. The free online lecture will take place on April 12th, at 7 pm. Free preregistration:
