Two towers support the bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge towers are of stone, but these towers are of wood with painted clapboards and cedar shake roofs.
The cables are anchored to concrete at each end.
An arched wooden walkway sways with each step taken, thus the nickname "Shakey Bridge."
To visit this bridge, walk past the Trenton Water Filtration Plant. The bridge is located at the edge of the plant.
This bridge connects two buildings which were originally the Headquarters Offices of the Roebling Trenton Plant. They now house Mercer County Administrative offices. Behind the bridge is the Invention Factory, a museum.
