West Trenton Railroad Bridge


blank dot

The Philadelphia & Reading Railroad's Delaware River Bridge, also known as the Yardley Bridge and the West Trenton Railroad Bridge, spans the Delaware River west of Rotary Island between Yardley, Bucks County, Pennsylvania and West Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey. The bridge is part of the CSX's Trenton Subdivision railroad line and SEPTA's West Trenton Line.Pennsylvania Route 32 passes under the West Trenton Railroad Bridge before entering the borough of Yardley and becoming South Delaware Avenue.

The Mary Yardley Footbridge is a metal footbridge that crosses the Delaware Canal nearby and was built over 100 years ago by Yardley property owner Mary Yardley. The bridge and bridge path was used to connect Main Street and the Rivermawr neighborhood, providing residents access to the trolley that ran along North Main Street. The footbridge is located near the Delaware River Bridge in Yardley, Pennsylvania. The bridge was named after Mary Yardley, the adjacent property owner who granted a public easement from North Main Street to access the bridge. The original metal body footbridge was built more than a century ago and is now deteriorating. Yardley Borough Council has been working for the past three years on plans to replace the deteriorating footbridge, which provides a pedestrian link over the Delaware Canal between Rivermawr and North Main. The footbridge is at coordinates 40.2473128,-74.8435418.
