  Check out some photos of the replacement bridge that has just been completed in Hopatcong, New Jersey. NJ County Route 605 passes over the former Lackawanna Cut-Off at this point. This bridge is located on the heavily traveled County Route 605 (Sparta-Stanhope Road) border of Hopatcong, Stanhope and Byram. To improve the safety at this crossing of the Lackawanna Cut-Off the old narrow, right angled one-lane structure that was built in 1911 has been bypassed.  This project included a new bridge to replace the old one. As you can see the old structure (Photo 1 looking westbound)  has been repaired and left in place for bicycle and pedestrian use, also notice the amount of snow on the ground from yesterday's winter storm in October!. 
   The new bridge was constructed to look similar to the DL&W standards (Photo 3) used almost 100 years ago, for historical purposes. It cost the Lackawanna Railroad 11 Million to construct the entire Cut-Off itself. Total cost of the new bridge you see…. 7.5 million dollars!
