Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

South Street Bridge

South Street Bridge

The South Street Bridge, which stretches over the Schuylkill River and connects West Philadelphia to Center City, was originally built in 1876. In 2010, a new bridge opened with wide pedestrian sidewalks, bike lanes and an impressive lighting scheme that appropriately complements the Philadelphia skyline.
