TRENTON, N.J. - The bridge carrying Province Line Road over Stony Brook, which has been closed to vehicular traffic since 1981 but used by pedestrians and bicyclists, was reopened to non-vehicular traffic on Nov. 16 after Mercer County completed rehabilitation work. The bridge is located between Pretty Brook Road in Princeton and Rosedale Road in Lawrence.

The original bridge was built in 1903 and was deemed Structurally Deficient when closed to traffic in 1981.

The rehabilitation work, which was begun by the County in June 2012, included removal and replacement of the timber wood deck, removal and replacement of the stringers, repair and repointing of the substructure, rehabilitation of the wing wall, painting of the trusses and floor beams, rehabilitation of the steel trusses, asphalt overlay at approaches, approach guiderail and installation of bollards. The structure is 14 feet wide between trusses; its overall length is 139 feet 6 inches.

The entire project was funded by Mercer County and completed by the Mercer County Bridge Division.
