That bridge should be one way. I folded my side mirrors in when a car came the other way

It sure does look narrow. I know Z06's are wide, but that looks ridiculously narrow! And for a Vette to fold in mirrors............

I can't remember which that is, could you please remind me?

I have no clue what bridge it is. I was just following Glenn. I'm sure he'll chime in when he sees this post. There are several narrow bridges in the general area and they are a bit scary to take in a Vette. A few of us were on the Washington's Crossing bridge a couple of years ago and luckily a guy blocked traffic coming the other way for us. Of course he was driving a beautiful vintage Rolls Royce and was probably fearing for his paint job as much as we were.

I like to bring my GPS (in case I get lost) and take back roads all over the area and see where they lead. You'll be amazed at the great roads and scenery you've lived near for years but never stumbled upon.

The Washington Crossing bridge is HUGE compared to the one in the picture. I take the W/C bridge to Jersey sometimes in my Chevy 2500 work van with no problems. Just pull my mirror in an go.

I think I've been over all the bridges in Upper Bucks and Northhampton, I just can't remember that one.

Washington Crossing bridge is narrower hence the name we locals in this area call it "the skinny bridge".

Lived around here all my life in Lower Makefield and never heard it called that. Although I have heard it called alot of other names that I can't print here by people driving over it.
That and the Clhoun St Bridge in Morrisville were the Bridges that we drove over when we got our driving permits. If you could cross them in two way traffic you had it made.

Todd, you are correct on both accounts.

I take the Washington Crossing Bridge when I go to Englishtown. I always fold in my mirrors. The bigass SUV's with the soccer moms on their cell with little kids bouncing off the inside always make me nervous. A couple of years ago the PA & NJ State Troopers blocked large SUV's from going across. I don't know why they stopped.

Couple more pics of this bridge........

The same Frenchtown NJ to Uhlerstown PA bridge.




We'll have to put the Washington Crossing Bridge on our next tour and show those pics....

THIS is what's on the other side of the Frenchtown Bridge when you get to Uhlerstown. THIS road (below) makes the bridge look like I-405 in LA


This road is NOT one way..

Rick/Arleen...lived in LMT now almost 28 yrs as have many of our family. Guess the "skinny bridge" is more a family thing although we live near the Upper Makefield side and many of our friends also refer to it by that name.

Regarding the SUVs....as I recall the bridge has a 6 ton GVW max rating and they were ticketing large SUVs and truckes based on their registration weight ratings and not their actual load. Lasted about 6 months and I know several who were "bagged".

The weight regitistion may have been different than the 6 tons I noted but it was all related to that issue. Kinda funny, if you were comming from the NJ side you may recall there is about a 45 degree turn as you enter the bridge span by the guard shack and you could not see the Pa side road till you were on the bridge. The police would sit at the ice cream store on the PA side and hit them with radar as it is a 15MPH limit. Needles to say, nowhere to hide from the gun.

You have to love the sign to the left side of the bridge...... "NO JUMPING OFF BRIDGE" ...I wonder how well this would deter a sucide attempt?...
