Bridges Over The Passaic River

 

      Bridges

 

Often Scenic and Useful Landmarks

Here's a list of bridges spanning the river, along with the general location of parks and tributaries in relation to them, starting at the headwaters in Mendham and listed in order of flow downstream to Newark Bay. The abreviation 'rds' is for right side when looking downstream, 'lds' for the left side. The fishermans parking lot at Lord Stirling Park is one of the first points where the river becomes navigable.
