Lock 1
Bordentown
3/28/04
Lock is of wooden construction and replaced an earlier masonry lock nearby that sank due to poor soil.
Today, lock gates are missing allowing tidal flow into and out of the basin.
View is at lower tide.
Site is easily accessible from rest area on I-95 or from bridge across Crosswick Creek
A concrete snubbing post is barely visible on far wall.
