This is a beautiful bridge and a significant feat of civil engineering. There are good historical signs explaining various aspects of the bridge’s design and how it was used. There is also a small museum in toll house (I think it was) on the NY side of the bridge.

Was part of the original Delaware and Hudson Canal. Now you can walk or drive over it. Lots of other great recreation nearby.

This is a must see if you're in the area. It's well maintained, free, and very educational. Great history and explanation of how life along the canal/rivers evolved over the years. My husband and I learned so much on this visit. So very glad we stopped and took the time to see it.

My husband "discovered " this bridge going a back way skiing. When he mentioned it to me, I realized it was the name of the man who built the Brooklyn Bridge! And the tow path there and the joining of the Delaware and Lacawaxen rivers have a connection to the Erie Canal,

If you like history, transportation, bridges, canals and trains, this has it all. This was an aquaduct designed by Roebling of Brooklyn Bridge fame. It is now a road that crosses the Delaware River between PA & NY. The original cables are visible as pointed out by one of the many signs. Roebling invented the type of cable. Well worth a visit, but you have to walk across the bridge to read all the history and see diagrams re: working and construction.
