Ben Franklin Bridge to Host 2,000 Walkers for Breast Cancer Fundraiser

On Sunday, October 1, between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m., approximately 2,000 walkers will walk across the Benjamin Franklin Bridge's pedestrian walkway to raise money for the Bi-State Walk for Hope to Cure Breast Cancer. The walkers will start at Campbell's Field in Camden, walk over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge using the pedestrian walkway, and end their walk at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at Penn's Landing. The walk benefits the City of Hope Cancer Center. Benjamin Franklin Bridge vehicular traffic will not be affected during this event. The walkers will use the South Walkway. The North Walkway remains closed for construction. Walkway users may experience delays in crossing the bridge during the event hours of 9:30-11:30 a.m., especially for those trying to head eastbound into New Jersey. The Delaware River Port Authority is a regional transportation and development agency. DRPA owns and operates the Benjamin Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross bridges, and the PATCO High Speed Line, the Philadelphia Cruise Terminal at Pier 1 and the RiverLink Ferry.
