The Anderson Street Bridge, also known as the Cedar Lane Bridge, is a fixed span road bridge over the Hackensack River in Hackensack and Teaneck in Bergen County, New Jersey, U.S. The crossing was built in 1971 to replace an earlier structure. Being structurally deficient, the bridge was given weight restrictions in 2012 and was partially closed in 2016 for interim repairs. It is one of several bridges over the river in Hackensack, including Court Street Bridge, Midtown Bridge and those that carry Interstate 80 and Route 4.

Earlier crossings

Records indicate that a wooden bridge was built on the site in 1858 and replaced by a new crossing in the early 20th century.

Weight limitations and reconstruction

In 2012 due to structural deficiencies, the bridge was limited to vehicles of less than 15 tons and two outer lanes were closed, thus precipitating the re-routing of more than 400 weekday buses trips, affecting New Jersey Transit bus routes 83, 157, 168, 175, 178, 182, 751, 753, 755, 772 and 780.

In 2016 eastbound lanes were closed for interim repairs until such time as it can be permanently repaired or replaced.
