Beesley's Point Bridge

Beesley's Point Bridge

The Beesley's Point Bridge is a privately-owned toll bridge that exists along US 9 in New Jersey, that is no longer in use by motor vehicles due to unsafe conditions. It crosses the Great Egg Harbor River, connecting Upper Township, in Cape May County to Somers Point in Atlantic County. The bridge is operated and maintained by the Beesley's Point Bridge Commission.

Before the Great Egg Harbor Bridge was completed, traffic on the Garden State Parkway was detoured onto Route 9 and over the Beesley's Point Bridge. This old alignment still exists today and is slowly being consumed by nature.

The bridge is currently closed to motor traffic due to unsafe conditions on the bridge. Traffic is detoured on to the Garden State Parkway at Exit 25 traversing the Great Egg Harbor Bridge to Exit 29 in Somers Point, again meeting with Route 9.
