I have been to this bridge several times but this Mother's Day is the first time I crossed over it. The bridge is built by John Roebling; the same man that designed and build the Brooklyn Bridge. It was an aqueduct at one time but now a bridge. If you ride across the one lane bridge in your car, you... More

A visit to the bridge and surrounding areas is well worth it especially if you take the time to walk across the bridge. The suspension cables are contained within the bridgework and remain functional some 165 years on. It is an engineering marvel, but then again Roebling went on to design the Brooklyn Bridge!

The bridge is a nice attraction to visit, especially if you get there from the NY side using the Senic Byway which is RT. 97. There is a small museum on the NY side of the bridge. There are nice views with great colors in the fall. Watch for eagles and hawks, there is a large concentration of these in... More

This isn't a major tourist attraction. It's by the confluence of the Delaware and Lackawaxen rivers, and also Zane Grey's home, which is now a museum. On the PA side is a boat launch that also serves as an informal spot for people to bring their dogs for a quick dip. The walk across the Aqueduct is nicely interpreted with... More

A brief glimpse into 1850 and a huge engineering accomplishment. The bridge images show an incredible achievement and highlight the changes through time, between the railroads and canals.

This is a really nice spot to stop and walk out on the bridge. One lane bridge at the delaware river. Beatiful veiws and just a nice spot.

The canal era is an almost-forgotten part of American history. This bridge preserves a small part of that era. Make sure to allow enough time to cross the bridge on foot before crossing in your vehicle. The upstream and downstream views from the middle of the bridge are just beautiful.

Saw this bridge when I canoed down the Delaware as a teen. It's a fascinating story and great monument to a tremendous engineer.

It was difficult to find this bridge from Hawley, Pa but after many twists and turns we found Lackawaxen where the Roebling Bridge was located. I had never heard of this type of bridge so it was interesting to read about the history of the bridge and the aqueduct. We walked across the bridge which was exciting as we crossed... More

This bridge is pretty neat. It is a quick stop and easy to cross, even though it is only one lane. It is also historical, since it was designed by the same person who designed the Brooklyn Bridge. Such a quick stop, so it should not be missed!
