Summary

Significance: The Osborn Avenue Bridge (currently known as the Tuttle Parkway Bridge) represents the application of an important technology and is significant as one of the few surviving truss bridges associated with the former Central Railroad of New Jersey's main line. The bridge is a typical example of a steel Warren through truss highway bridge with verticals and is notable for its use as a railroad crossing. The New Jersey State Historic Preservation Officer determined the Osborn Avenue Bridge eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C.
Survey number: HAER NJ-102
