Adjustment to Ben Franklin Bridge Walkway Schedule

Effective, Monday, October 6 until further notice, the south walkway of the Ben Franklin Bridge will be closed and the north walkway will be open. Walkway hours will remain 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., daily. The change in the walkway status is due to the ongoing Ben Franklin Bridge Steel Painting Project, which will shift from the north side of the bridge to the south side of the bridge.
