DELAWARE TWP., February 26, 2013 - Struck again, the last covered bridge in the State of New Jersey. This time it was a canadian trucker, February 24 about 11:45 p.m. A "support beam" was found hanging down inside the bridge but the bridge remains open to traffic.

The bridge was struck in February 1994 and again in December 2010. The road suppervisor claims the bridge has been struck at least five times.

The 84-foot Green Sergeants Bridge was built in 1892 using a queenpost truss to cross the Wickecheoke Creek and named for Mill operator Richard Green Sergeant.
