Stony Brook Bridge, the oldest bridge in New Jersey, is in danger of collapsing. It's on Route 206, a major thoroughfare that runs from Atlantic County in South Jersey through Trenton, up through North Jersey and into Pennsylvania.

The bridge is 224 years old and was just reopened after emergency repairs.
We met with a George Washington re-enactor to discuss the bridge's history.
"The bridge was here before 1776, but this bridge the way it is now was built in 1792 when I was president of the United States," said Sam Davis, George Washington re-enactor.
