Neat history of the D&H canal and how the Roebling Aquaduct fit in. Now a one lane suspension bridge between new York and PA.

Very cool - built by the same guy who also designed the Brooklyn Bridge - yea; that Roebling. Very interesting pictures and information about the canal system that used to be in the area.

This bridge is an interesting place to stop for about 10/15 minutes. You can tune your radio to listen to some information about the bridge and they also have some good information boards at the parking lot end of the bridge.

As we crossed a bridge over the Delaware River on the way to Zane Grey's river home, I thought it was odd that a bridge over such a scenic area would be built with high solid walls. The volunteer at the Grey house explained what it was recommended a stop on the way back. We were are so glad we... More

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.
