HILLERY STREET BRIDGE
TOTOWA TO WOODLAND PARK, PASSAIC COUNTY, NJ
Project Highlights / Scope of Work
• Refurbished / re-fabricated existing steel trusses on historic pony truss bridge
• Produced 500’ of historic reproduction ornamental handrails
• Production to comply with state regulations for historic restoration
The Hillery Street Bridge, originally built in 1898, is historically significant as the only remaining bridge in Passaic County, NJ to feature Pratt pony trusses. The Pratt truss was widely used from 1840 to 1900. The refurbished bridge is consists of a 30’ wide deck and two sidewalks.
The original multi-span steel trusses were removed and shipped to our Southampton facility where the components were either rehabilitated or newly fabricated, depending on condition. Some 500’ of ornamental hand railing was recreated for installation on the new sidewalks. Everything was painted to match the look of the original structure. All the components conform to the state regulations for historic restoration.
The renovated elements of the bridge have not only improved safety, but also restored the aesthetics of the original design.
