Welcome to the NJTPA Local Concept Development Study for the Bridge Street Bridge over the Passaic River in the City of Newark, Essex County and the Town of Harrison, Hudson County, New Jersey. The County of Essex and the County of Hudson are conducting a study of the existing Bridge Street Bridge. The bridge is over 100 years old and has structural and functional limitations that don't meet today's design standards. The Counties are working with the municipalities in coordination with NJTPA and NJDOT to determine what bridge improvements are possible.
Community involvement is a vital part of the LCD Study and we encourage the community and general public to follow, participate, and provide input on improvements to the bridge as an important transportation link for the local communities and the region.
