Green Sergeant's Covered Bridge is a wooden covered bridge over the Wickecheoke Creek near the border between the Hunterdon Plateau and Amwell Valley located in Delaware Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. As the last historic covered bridge in the state of New Jersey, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (the Scarborough Bridge in Cherry Hill is the only other covered bridge in New Jersey). The bridge was first constructed in 1872, but after being damaged in 1960, it was dismantled and replaced with a modern bridge.[3] In 1961, due to public outcry, the bridge was rebuilt from the original materials.[3][4]

The bridge has been damaged numerous times over the course of its history by vehicles striking the bridge structure, most recently in 2013 when a truck damaged the support beams of the bridge.[5]

It is a contributing structure in the Covered Bridge Historic District.
