Point-No-Point Bridge to Be Replaced

Post by EuroStar » Wed Oct 17, 2018 8:24 am

There are reports that Conrail is looking to replace Point-No-Point Bridge https://jerseydigs.com/point-no-point-r ... -replaced/. A bried quote:
The bridge suffered some damage during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, according to a Conrail presentation....
The notice states that the current plan by Conrail calls for building a bascule bridge on an alignment between the existing Point-No-Point Bridge and the Turnpike...
Construction on a replacement bridge could begin in 2020 or 2021 should the project continue to advance, according to Hill.

To which railroad did this bridge belong before Conrail?
