The Delaware River Port Authority has awarded Skanska USA a $195 million contract to rehabilitate the Benjamin Franklin rail and vehicle bridge connecting Philadelphia to Camden, New Jersey.
Construction on the 3,500-foot suspension bridge — which carries seven lanes of traffic and two rail lines — began in February and is scheduled to be completed in December 2024.
The project includes installation of a main cable dehumidification system and elastomeric wrapping, walkway widening, painting, steel repairs, anchorage repairs and decorative lighting.
The Port Authority Transit Corp. passenger-rail service uses the bridge.
