Basilone Bridge

The Basilone Bridge is a bridge on the New Jersey Turnpike (concurrency with Interstate 95) in the U.S. state of New Jersey spanning the Raritan River. The bridge connects Edison Township on the north with New Brunswick on the south.

The bridge, which opened along with the Turnpike in 1951 is named for John Basilone, a World War II recipient of the Medal of Honor who grew up in nearby Raritan, New Jersey.
