Bridgeport lies along the Delaware River at the mouth of the Raccoon Creek. US 322 enters New Jersey in Bridgeport via the Commodore Barry Bridge, and continues on to cross US 130 and Interstate 295 before leaving Logan Township. Route 44 is an old alignment of US 130, beginning at a point north of US 322. Unsigned Route 324 is an East-West state highway completely within Bridgeport, running from where a ferry used to take US 322 across the river to a dead end next to the current US 322. There is a private marina and a small airfield in town, and a Penns Grove Secondary line crosses Raccoon Creek at the Conrail Railroad Bridge in Bridgeport at mile 2.0.
