From the mouth of the Susquehanna River there are four bridges in Havre de Grace. They are, in order, the Amtrak Susquehanna River Bridge, Thomas J Hatem Memorial Bridge on US Route 40, the CSX railroad bridge, and the Interstate 95 bridge.

Amtrak Susquehanna River Bridge is a double-track bridge was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad between 1904–1906 to connect Washington DC and New York City. Two railroad mainlines cross this span with more than 80 daily Amtrak passenger trains.

Thomas J Hatem Memorial Bridge carries US Route 40 over the Susquehanna River, and it allows 11.1 million vehicles to cross each year. A $5 toll on two-axle vehicles is collected in the eastbound direction only. The 1.3-mile, four-lane bridge was constructed from February 1939 to August 1940, and it is the oldest of the seven toll facilities operated and maintained by the Maryland Transportation Authority. The bridge, as of 2009 is under construction as a new deck is installed.

Perryville Railroad Bridge is CSX Transportation's rail bridge used used mainly for freight. It was built around 1908 and it has a one mile span crossing the Susquehanna and Garrett Island.

Millard E. Tydings Memorial Bridge is Interstate 95's crossing of the Susquehanna north of town. It was constructed from 1962 to 1963, and it carries some 29 million vehicles a year. There is a $5 toll for all northbound traffic.
