The HX Draw is a bascule bridge carrying the New Jersey Transit Bergen County Line and Pascack Valley Line across the Hackensack River between Secaucus, New Jersey and East Rutherford. The bridge is also known as The Jack-Knife because of its unusual method of opening.
Designed by Joseph Strauss and completed in 1911, this bridge is one of the first heel trunnion bascule bridges built in the United States and originally formed part of the Erie Railroad's main line.
In 2008, NJ Transit repainted the span in a new coat of black paint.
