The Calhoun Street Bridge spans 1,274 feet across the Delaware River, connecting Trenton, New Jersey, on its east bank with Morrisville, Pennsylvania, on its west bank. Built in 1884, the intricate iron truss bridge carries motor vehicles on a two-lane roadway and pedestrians/bicyclists in a lane separated from traffic.
The bridge was part of the historical Lincoln Highway, which was planned to be a system of connected roadways from New York to San Francisco. A sign on the bridge notes this important role. Today, the bridge is part of a new transportation system, The Circuit Trails, a developing 750-mile network of interconnected trails centered in the Philadelphia and Camden region and expanding outward.
Near each end of the bridge, you can also connect to two incredible long-distance trails. The Delaware Canal Towpath spans 70 miles, heading north from Trenton to Easton and south to Bristol along a pathway dating back to the historical canal-building era of the early and mid-1800s. On the other shore, the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail forms a V-shaped route with the centerpoint at Trenton; one side heads up to Frenchtown and the other side goes to New Brunswick.
