This bridge replaced the old truss listed as lost at
http://www.bridgehunter.com/nj/hunterdon/10XXF62/

This is a fully modern plate welded I beam bridge, load rated to something like 69 tons, yet most of the strength of this 2 span pony is really only used against spring floods, not against traffic weight. This is a very strong modern bridge in a very quiet ex-suburban rural area.
