Hackensack River Bridges

Hackensack River Crossings

I have been long fascinated with a collection of four lift bridges in close proximity to each other along the Hackensack River in New Jersey. The juxtaposition of the new and old, of glossy black paint and rust, and of streamlined design and complexity provide fodder for captivating photography—especially as one of the crossings is nearing the end of its serviceable life.

Following up from the aerials of the adjoining Wheeling Suspension Bridge are new aerials of the Fort Henry Bridge which carries Interstate 70 and US Routes 40 and 250 over the main channel of the Ohio River in Wheeling, West Virginia.

The heavens opened up and the rain poured down during my travels through West Virginia, but the sun was shining as I took these aerial and on-the-ground photos of the Wheeling Suspension Bridge, which carries the National Road over the Ohio River between Wheeling Island and downtown Wheeling, West Virginia.
