Beginning Monday, May 10, through Monday, May 24, the Benjamin Franklin Bridge south walkway will be closed to provide access to DRPA personnel making fiber optic repairs. During the closure, the north walkway will be open. Walkway hours are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., daily. (10PM from May 17-21st for bike week)
On its approach to the Camden staircase the North Walkway narrows into a 800 foot long catwalk or "cattle chute" that sometimes require bicyclists (or polite pedestrians) to back up and let people going the opposite way pass. On the other hand the view is different, most notably the demolition of the Riverfront State Prison and the emerging Sugar House property.
