The Mercer County Department of Transportation and Infrastructure has completed the rehabilitation of the bridge carrying South Clinton Avenue over Assunpink Creek in the City of Trenton. The bridge was reopened to vehicular traffic April 30 on budget.

Officially known as Bridge No. 140.6 on South Clinton Avenue, the structure is located between Raoul Wallenberg and Greenwood avenues.

The bridge is a twin-barrel masonry arch structure. The rehabilitation included the construction of a reinforced concrete slab above the existing two-barrel stone masonry arch, and rehabilitation of the stone masonry spandrel walls, intrados and the concrete pier nose. The cross section at the bridge consists of two variable-width travel lanes, and two sidewalks, three-beam guide rail (bridge railing), concrete barrier, pedestrian railing and ornamental pedestrian railing. The superstructure consists of a reinforced concrete deck slab section.

Sparwick Contracting Inc. of Lafayette was the successful low bidder at $2,189,338. The contract was awarded May 24, 2018, and was funded through the New Jersey Department of Transportation Division of Local Aid funds.
