Passaic River Bridge
Posted March 7, 2013, by Craig Nunn (dystopicnj [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge (NJ Route 3 bridge over the Passaic River) is now demolished and replaced with a new bridge. Here is an article about the demolition of the old bridge: http://www.nj.com/bergen/index.ssf/2013/02/final_explosion_a...

And here is a photo of the new bridge on one of the days the piers of the old bridge were being blown up: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=201930499939111&set=....
