Covered bridges were once popular in the Garden State, even crossing the Delaware River in Trenton and Lambertville. Today, Hunterdon County’s Green Sergeant’s Covered Bridge is considered the last authentic covered bridge in New Jersey by the National Register of Historic Places. However, you can find a second covered bridge! The Scarborough Bridge was completed in 1959 and crosses the Cooper River in Cherry Hill. It may be more modern but it’s still a treat! Visitors can drive, walk, or bike across. This bridge in the¬†Barclay Farm neighborhood is 55 feet long.
