I’ve driven over the Delaware Memorial Bridge too many times to count or remember. It’s a bridge. There is not much else to say. If anything, it shortens the drive across the river and keeps you much dryer.

If you are in the Newark area, this is a great site.. Especially at night, it is a sight to see. You can see for over 20 miles going over it.

This is how you get to NJ from DE. There is often a lot off traffic on the bridge approaches in Delaware. I think the moral is that even with high Amtrak prices, it is better to take the train.

Considering when the first side was built, it is a true wonder of the engineering and construction professions. Feels like you are in flight when driving on the outer lanes, travel off hours - little traffic. A real architectural beauty.

A bridge is a bridge. There is nothing extraordinary about this one but it can speed your traverse of the Delaware River.
