Significance: The 17'-long, 46'-wide, steel stringer bridge on ashlar sandstone abutments carries two active tracks and two abandoned tracks of the former Central Railroad of New Jersey's Main Line (now New Jersey Transit) over Crossway Place between Westfield and Fanwood, NJ. The bridge is significant as an example of an early-20th-century steel stringer railroad bridge located in the CNJ Main Line Historic District, a linear district recognizing the important role the CNJ played in New Jersey transportation, commerce, and suburbanization from 1831 to 1945. The line is noteworthy for the density of historic resources remaining along its right-of-way, including stations, bridges, and related structures and industries.
