Ben Franklin Bridge Goes Eagles Green

The Ben Franklin Bridge will be arrayed in decorative green lighting on Thanksgiving night, November 27th, 2008.

The special lighting marks the home game the Philadelphia Eagles are playing at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia.  This is the first time the Eagles have ever played a game on Thanksgiving night.   The last time the Eagles played a Thanksgiving home game was in 1940 against Pittsburgh.

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, PATCO, the Philadelphia Cruise Terminal and the RiverLink Ferry.
