Originally a wooden bridge in colonial times, George Washington's Surveyor General, Robert Erskine, reported it to be a "Good Bridge" in 1779. From 1809 to 1869 the bridge was maintained by the original New Jersey Turnpike Corporation, which erected a tollgate nearby. An iron truss bridge replaced the wooden one in the late 1800s and that by a concrete bridge in 1924. The current bridge was erected in 2005.
