CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) – The Ben Franklin Bridge’s south walkway is ready for pedestrians and bicycles. The Delaware River Port Authority on Tuesday is reopening the walkway that has been closed since February 2018 for construction. A stairway was replaced with a new ramp.

The north walkway of the span, which connects Philadelphia with Camden, New Jersey, remained open during the work.

A ribbon cutting ceremony is taking place on the Camden side.
