Chesapake and Delaware Canal

I was looking at the Coast Pilot and a chart of Delaware river and Canal, and looks like all the fixed bridges 100+ feet. I was reading one of the logs where cruisers mentioned a 55' vertical clearance bridge?
Does anyone know of any "low" clearance bridges in this area?
I have cleared a 60' bridge before but it looked like a close call.

The railraod bridge is 45 when down but it is up most of the time and gives 129ft clearance +.
