Ben Franklin Bridge Eastbound Access

Ben Franklin Bridge eastbound access

The eastbound entrance to the Ben Franklin Bridge is surrounded by attractions and amenities for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders. A newly completed ADA-compliant ramp on the Camden side of the bridge has improved accessibility for pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities to access the bridge. However, heavy traffic and a roadway design that is primarily vehicle-oriented continue to pose a barrier to multimodal bridge access on the Philadelphia side. This project explored alternatives for roadway reconfiguration as well as other streetscape improvements to provide multimodal connections between the pedestrian bridge path and nearby amenities. A summary report is available here.
