Two types of roadway bridges are associated with this nomination: stone arch bridges and metal (cast or wrought iron or steel) truss bridges. Although Hunterdon County and Delaware Township contain historically significant railroad bridges, the context for their evaluation differs from from those of road or highway bridges, and is not presented in this nomination. [The structure inventories used by engineers and transportation agencies classify structures with a clear span between abutments less than twenty (20) feet as "culverts" and structures with a clear span 20 feet or larger as "bridges." For ease of understanding, however, all structures, regardless of length, whether using trusses or stringers or arches, are called bridges in this Multiple Property Documentation Form (MPDF).]
