The Victory Bridge consists of 3,971’ long twin structures and features a 440’ long precast concrete segmental main span. This span length was selected in order to maintain the significant shipping traffic on the Raritan River, as it allows for a 355’ wide navigational channel. The southbound bridge was opened to traffic 15 months after construction began and the northbound bridge was erected in just nine months. The new bridge honors World War I veterans with memorial obelisks at the abutments incorporating bronze plaques from the previous bridge and two new plaques.
