The Tallest, Most Impressive Bridge In New Jersey Can Be Found In The Town Of Fort Lee
The tallest bridge in the United States is the Royal Gorge Bridge over the Arkansas River in Colorado; it is 955 feet tall. The tallest bridge in New Jersey is the George Washington Bridge, which crosses over the Hudson River into New York. It is accessed on the Garden State side from the town of Fort Lee.
While learning about one of the area’s most iconic bridges is fun, I’m even more fascinated by our most historic bridges! Did you know that the Stony Brook Bridge in Princeton was built over 222 years ago? Over 13,000 cars per day cross the bridge, which has been renovated several times. Princeton is also home to a second bridge that dates back to the 1700s. It crosses the Millstone River but only sees about 7 cars per day.
