Description 

The Dillard Memorial Bridge is a center-bearing, Warren through truss swing span. The bridge has a concrete substructure and steel deck girder approach spans. The bridge was erected in 1908 by the F.R. Long Company, a regionally important bridge-building firm based in Hackensack. The F.R. Long Company also built the Lake Avenue Bridge in Midland Park (2) and the Passaic Avenue Bridge in Garfield.

This bridge is significant for its association with the F.R. Long Company and as a rare surviving operational swing span in the county. The bridge was dedicated to the memory of Harold J. Dillard, the first Hackensack native killed in Vietnam.
