Ben Franklin Bridge South Walkway Closure

 On Tuesday, December 27, 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 8pm daily.

The south walkway will remain closed until further notice with one exception. The south walkway will be open all day on Saturday, December 31, beginning at 6am to give walkway users the opportunity to watch the 6pm fireworks display over the Delaware River. The walkway will then close at the usual time of 8pm.

Those using the north 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.
