Description 

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.
