Description 

NBI gives this one a build date of 1999, which matches the date inscribed on the bridge, but that fact shows that the 2002 County Survey "The Historic Bridges of Hunterdon County" is not always accurate if all the information in it is from 2002; I expect some of it is actually from 1992, and this error may be proof of that.

UglyBridges.com shows the old truss still in place as of mid-1999.

There is also some confusion between online maps, paper maps, and county documents whether the street is called "Everitt's" or "Everitt" Road, though the current street signs read "Everitts".
