Pictures of the Edison Bridge (US 9)
Edison Bridge (US 9) Northbound Edison Bridge (US 9) Southbound
This is the beginning of the Edison Bridge, US 9 north, in Sayreville Boro.  This bridge will be rehabilitated to allow only northbound traffic to cross, while southbound traffic uses the bridge's recently completed twin.  The Edison Bridge's age is visible by its high crest, limited sight distance at the crest, 1930's style edge barriers, and lack of shoulders.  Once it is rehabilitated, the 4 lanes in both directions with no shoulders and a center barrier that existed when it was filmed will be replaced by 3 northbound lanes with full shoulders.  It will also undergo redecking and structural rehabilitation.  Filmed May 28, 2001.



This is the beginning of the Edison Bridge, US 9 south, in Woodbridge Township.  The crane visible on the right was working on the Edison Bridge's twin, which was still under construction at the time.  Now that the new bridge is open, southbound traffic no longer flows over the old Edison Bridge as it does in these pictures.  Filmed May 28, 2001.
