Report: Biking and walking on the Ben Franklin Bridge

Based on the findings of Crossing the Delaware for Transportation Independence issued in June 2010, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is calling upon the Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) to take the following measures to transform the Ben Franklin Bridge into a high-quality transportation connector between Philadelphia and Camden for all of its users:

  • Accelerate the design of a new ramp in 2011 to replace the three story stair tower on the Camden side of the Bridge
  • Make the entrances to the Bridge on both sides of the River more welcoming and inviting
  • Develop a snow removal policy that opens the walkway as soon as possible during weather related events
