Delaware Memorial Bridge

Passing the next large bridge on our way to Newark went considerably faster.
Just like the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the Delaware Memorial Bridge is a toll bridge. At both bridges the toll is only collected in one direction. One-way tolls for traffic entering Delaware and we left Delaware.
Just like the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the Delaware Memorial Bridge is a twin suspension bridge. At first glance, the bridges are very similar, but there are differences.
The total length of the Delaware Memorial Bridge is "only" 3281 m. And the span of the suspension span of the bridge is also smaller (655 m).
The first span opened August 15, 1951; (now eastbound). The second span opened September 12, 1968; (westbound)
As you can clearly see on the photos, this bridge has no truss deck and we have an unobstructed view of the vertical suspender of the suspension bridge
The bridges are dedicated to those from both New Jersey and Delaware who died in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Persian Gulf War.
The bridge crosses the Delaware River from New Castle, Delaware to Pennsville Township, New Jersey.
