Penn Public Safety launches South Street Bridge Website

In an email circulated to all faculty and staff, Penn’s Division of Public Safety announced that the South Street Bridge will close for reconstruction before the end of 2008.

Since the closure will have considerable impact on access and lead to increased traffic congestion on and around campus, Penn Public Safety has launched the South Street Bridge Website.  Folks can visit this site for updates on the Bridge construction, maps of campus, recommended detours and other information about the impact of the Bridge closing on campus as well as benefits for those who use public transit.

As the City releases more project details, updates will be provided on the website. For general questions about the South Street Bridge Project, you can also email:
