Ben Franklin Bridge South Walkway Closure

On Wednesday, September 14, the Benjamin Franklin Bridge south walkway is temporarily closing because of work being done on the bridge. The north walkway will be open for pedestrians and cyclists. Walkway hours are 6am to 9pm daily. The south walkway will remain closed until further notice.

On Sunday, September 18, the south walkway will be the location of an annual charity event staged by "City of Hope" to raise money for research and treatment of Breast Cancer. Only those involved in the charity event will be allowed access to the south walkway. The north walkway will be open for everyone else.

Those using the walkway should be advised the Fifth Street pedestrian tunnel is closed in Camden. Alternates include the Sixth Street pedestrian tunnel or the Third Street underbridge sidewalk.

I crossed the bridge today on the South walkway. Maybe it will be closed on my return trip?

PS: I hate the north walkway

We're looking into it. If there is a change we'll post it here.
