HISTORY: Where is This Street?

If you drive much around Woodbridge, you may have passed on this street since it was a dirt road with a jerry-rigged bridge.

There haven't been many unpaved streets in Woodbridge for eons, but if you drive much around the township, you may have found yourself on this road. You may just not recognize it without a few coatings of asphalt it's received over the decades.

Then there's the impromptu bridge in the picture over a creek. It's since been replaced by something much more sturdy that can handle modern cars, versus the early 20th century models parked on the side of the road.

Does this street look familiar? See if you can guess where this is! (Hint: it is in Woodbridge Proper.)

Post your guesses below! (And watch for the updated article with the current view of this street.)

My guess is Rt. 35 by the Woodbridge Animal Hospital and Woodbridge Park, going over the strom drain.

My first thought was Barron Ave, but could be Rt 35 by South Park, but the bridge would have to be much bigger...confused. Will wait for answer.

Jay W Frangione My guess is Barron Avenue before all the developement. The road looks very long.

Has to be Heards Brook going across 35, School St or Rahway Ave.

I say it's Blair Road going through Avenel. I remember my Dad driving me as a little child through it before the industrial developments came along and the road got paved.

My first guess is Ridgedale Avenue, there's a small creek that runs under Ridgedale close to where it intersects with Freeman Street. Second guess is School Street or Pearl Street, both streets cross over Heard's Brook.
