The Benjamin Franklin Bridge is a vital gateway connecting Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Great pride went into the construction of the iconic Art Deco bridge nearly 100 years ago. However, the bridge fundamentally changed the urban landscape of Camden. It’s span divided the City, fencing off North Camden from Downtown. During heavy rain and snow events, run-off from the bridge floods the surrounding and homes. We’re working with City and County leaders to change all of that. Once complete, vast gardens will capture bridge runoff, create a common green space below the bridge, and provide a safe multimodal trail to compliment the local Circuit Trail.

It’s not much to look at—a vacant asphalt lot and an empty field, cut by a concrete ditch, shaded by a few big old broadleaf trees. But for the families who live close by...
