The previous bridge carrying Opie/River Road over the South Branch of the Raritan River was originally built at this location in 1921 by Dover Boiler Works and was significant as a rare example of a rivet-connected Pratt truss bridge. The current span replaced the bridge in 2005, utilizing the rehabilitated truss members from the original bridge.
