Remarks & Notes 
River Draw was built in 1908 to replace an existing bridge built at the location in 1875 to serve the New York and Long Branch Railroad jointly operated by the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the Pennsylvania Railroad. Today, the bridge is owned by NJ Transit carrying trains of both NJ Transit’s North Jersey Coast Line and Conrail shared assets. Since it’s completion the bridge has stood through many obstacles such as Super Storm Sandy. The bridge suffered structural damage after getting overwhelmed by storm surge and struck by multiple vessels. This then led to repairs to the bridge and permanent speed restrictions. It was only a about a week ago the board of directors at NJ Transit approved the construction start of the replacement lift bridge which is expected to begin in July of this year.
