US 1-9 Truck Hackensack River Bridge
Posted August 4, 2007, by Kevin Wong (R36Redbird [at] yahoo [dot] com)

US 1-9 Truck Route Hackensack River Bridge, aka "Lincoln Highway Bridge", lift span built in 1954. Simliar design to the 1948 William Stickel Bridge on Interstate 280 in Newark, NJ.

This is where on Christmas night, 2005 two Jersey City policemen died when their truck fell off the open bridge as they were guarding traffic (the traffic signals that night were broken).
