A blog about the elevation of the Lackawanna through the Oranges from 1913 to 1924 is at the following link:  http://lackawannarrelevation.blogspot.com/

The article that follows is from the periodical Railway Age, Volume 71, number 7, pp 281-284, August 13, 1921 available at Google books:

Below: a modern photo of the bridge that goes over the Garden State Parkway; the lower portion (with the darkened stone) was the original 1836 bridge over what was then called the Black Brook Valley and later the site of the East Orange Parkway; in 1921 the arched upper portion was added when the railroad was elevated.
