Welcome to the Valley Road Bridge (LCD) Study

Welcome to the Local Concept Development Study for the Valley Road (County Route 512) Bridge over the Passaic River connecting Bernards Township, Somerset County and Long Hill Township, Morris County. Now approaching 90 years old, the Valley Road Bridge is in poor condition and has structural and functional limitations that do not meet today’s design standards.

Somerset County and Morris County, in coordination with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), are conducting an LCD study to determine appropriate improvements to the Valley Road Bridge. The goals of the study are to address the structural deficiencies of the bridge and increase safety for the traveling public.

Community involvement is a vital part of the project. We encourage you to follow and provide input on improvements to the bridge as an important transportation link for the local communities and the region. Get Involved
