Lake Como-Hancock Bridge
The Lake Como-Hancock Bridge is the first bridge upstream on the West Branch of the Delaware River after the main Delaware River splits at Hancock, New York. The Lake Como-Hancock Bridge is one of the only bridges on the West Branch that are still completely open for all traffic, as many bridges further upstream are covered bridges or other spans that are closed to traffic. The same applies for the East Branch of the Delaware River located on the other side of town.
