DRPA’s Ben Franklin Bridge Named “Best Urban Hike.” And, Better Still, Agency Traffic and Finances Are All Good.

Courier-Post reports that “Philadelphia Magazine” has named the Ben Franklin Bridge “the ‘2016 Best Urban Hike’ in Philadelphia — and the Delaware River Port Authority officials who own and operate the span are beaming about it.” The report adds that at DRPA’s August 17 board meeting, “DRPA chief financial officer James White gave the 2015 annual traffic and revenue report on the four DRPA bridges and its PATCO Hi-Speedline transit service that reflected increases in all categories.”
