Tacony Palmyra Bridge

October 10, 2013 by  

Tacony Palmyra Bridge, After being closed for approximately 11 hours due to a malfunction, the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge has reopened to traffic.

The bridge was shut down at about 12:45 a.m. Thursday after the bridge remained in the open position following an opening for a ship.

At about 10 a.m., the bridge was lowered and shortly before noon, the bridge was fully reopened to car traffic. However, the bridge remains closed for pedestrians.

The closure of the bridge created a traffic nightmare for morning commuters. Motorists were forced to use the Betsy Ross Bridge, the Burlington-Bristol Bridge or other alternates.

Engineers are currently investigating what caused the bridge to malfunction.

The Tacony-Palmyra Bridge, which is 84-years-old, spans the Delaware Rivers and connects Northeast Philadelphia to South Jersey. Approximately 70,000 vehicles cross the bridge each day.
