Upper Trenton or Calhoun Street Bridge (1861-1882)

Morrisville - Trenton

The Trenton City Bridge Company built the Upper Trenton or Calhoun Street Bridge in 1861. It was about one mile north of the Lower Trenton Bridge.

During the Civil War, the bridge was used to ferry troops and supplies for the war effort.

The covered bridge had seven spans with a total length of 1,274 feet, including an extension of the bridge over a canal. The original construction cost was $60,000.

The Upper Trenton Bridge was totally destroyed by fire in June 1882 and replaced with an iron bridge in 1884.
