Bulls Island Bridge To Close For Construction

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission has announced that The Lumberville-Raven Rock Pedestrian Bridge is scheduled to be shut down at 7AM on Monday, March 4. The bridge closure is expected to remain in place for at least two months. During the shutdown period, pedestrians and bicyclists are urged to use the Centre Bridge-StocktonBridge ( 3.4 miles to the south) or the Uhlerstown-Frenchtown Bridge (9.2 miles to the north) as alternative river crossing points. The Bulls Island Campground remains closed for 2013 due to storm damage.

The suspension bridge was built in 1947 by John Roebling and Sons. The same firm that designed and built the Brooklyn and Golden Gate bridges. You can learn more about Roebling's legacy at the Roebling Museum, which is located in Roebling, NJ of course and is in line with the future Delaware River Heritage Trail.
