Little Falls Turnpike Overpass
The Little Falls Turnpike Overpass is a typical example of a simple span, multiple stringer, encased steel highway overpass built during the tenure of Morris Goodkind, chief bridge engineer for the New Jersey State Highway Department from 1925 to 1955. Goodkind emphasized the integration of architecture and aesthetics in bridge design and received awards from the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Institute of Steel Construction for his designs. The bridge was built to accommodate expansion of the state highway system west of New York City in the 1930s on N.J. Route 6, presently designated U.S. Route 46.
