Ben Franklin March Bridge Lighting

Delaware River Port Authority CEO, John J. Matheussen, has announced the Ben Franklin Bridge in March will have special lighting to promote the American Red Cross and also celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

For most of the month, March 1-16 and 18-31, the bridge will have red lighting to recognize American Red Cross Month.  The Red Cross provides assistance to those in need locally, nationally and internationally.  Most recently the efforts of the Red Cross were highlighted during the Haitian earthquake.  

On Wednesday, March 17, the bridge will have green lighting for the observance of St. Patrick’s Day.

The Delaware River Port Authority is a regional transportation 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.
