Riverton-Belvidere Bridge

Highway Bridge

Photo of Riverton-Belvidere Bridge

The Riverton-Belvidere Bridge carries Water Street across the Delaware River and connects Riverton, Lower Mount Bethel Township, Pennsylvania with the Town of Belvidere, New Jersey.

The original bridge at this site was a covered, wooden structure of arch pattern. During the flood of October 10, 1903, the superstructure was carried away and the present steel structure was erected.

The existing bridge, constructed in 1904, is a four-span, riveted steel, double Warren truss structure, with a total length of 653 feet. The steel open-grate deck provides a clear roadway width of only 16-feet, 4-inches between tri-beam railings allowing only 8 feet width per lane. A concrete-filled steel grating sidewalk is supported on the upriver truss with steel cantilever brackets. The bridge is currently posted for a 15 mph speed limit and an 8-ton weight limit.
