Opossum Road BridgeOpossum Road over Bedens Brook
Built across Bedens Brook in 1822, the Opossum Road Bridge is a double-arched, random-rubble stone bridge which retains its original stonework, arches, parapets and approaches. It is a good example not only of local bridgebuilding methods, but also of stone construction in general in the county. The bridge is 54 feet long, 15 feet wide and rises to a camelback shape at its center, which is 18 feet above the bed of Bedens Brook. The two arches are nine-and-a-half feet high and 20 feet wide. The bridge is maintained by Somerset County.
