Description 

Design matches other Lattice Bowstring spans credited to Joseph Henszey and the Continental Bridge Co. of Philadelphia.

The article calls the stream Cremoline Creek while the NBI data for the 1965 replacement refers to it as Lawrence Brook. Google says Raritan River; which it does appear to be a branch of.
