Always sad to see a bridge of this age face destruction.
This span is locally known as the Beesley's Point Bridge. As of August, 2010, it remains closed to traffic. Deterioration on the span has advanced in the past six years, making renovation of the span for a return to traffic service very costly. Indications from NJDOT suggest they will be seeking its partial demolition with the sections closest to land remaining as fishing piers.
