The Lower Trenton Toll-Supported Bridge carries SR 2060/Bridge Street across the Delaware River and connects the Borough of Morrisville, Bucks County, Pennsylvania with the City of Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey. The bridge is a five-span, riveted steel, subdivided Warren Truss structure. Spans 3 and 4 of the downstream truss support the iconic “Trenton Makes…The World Takes” sign comprised of individual letter housings that are 9’-6” in height. Work on this project consists of, but not limited to: removing the neon tube lighting elements and the electrical power supply system for the “Trenton Makes…The World Takes” sign, cleaning and painting existing letters, furnishing and installing new color-changing LED strip lighting elements and electrical supply components and suppling all materials, devices, and manpower for the maintenance and protection of traffic pattern necessary to accommodate the lighting installation.
