DRPA Has Flyers Fever

The Delaware River Port Authority is continuing its support of the Philadelphia Flyers in their quest for the Stanley Cup.

The Ben Franklin Bridge will continue to be arrayed in orange decorative lighting to support the Flyers during their home playoff games on April 28th and April 30th and all other home games after those dates.

In addition, Toll Collectors on the Walt Whitman Bridge have been given the opportunity to wear Flyer “Orange Crush” T-shirts on days of the home games. The shirts are being provided by the Hockey Team.

DRPA CEO, John J. Matheussen, says “we are pleased to do our part in supporting the Flyers during their battle against the Montreal Canadiens.”

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 PATCO, the Philadelphia Cruise Terminal and the RiverLink Ferry.
