River Road West, over Lamington River
This bridge is pretty much identical to the modern one on Opie Road at the other end of the county.

This modern bridge is right on the county line between Hunterdon and Somerset counties. The road is named Lamington Road in Hunterdon County, and River Road West in Somerset County, but by either name this newer modern truss bridge is just yards from the 9th hole Tee of the Fiddler's Elbow golf course, spanning Rockaway Creek.
