Work continues on the creation of a new movable bridge to link Grays Ferry Crescent to Bartram’s Mile. The old bridge and fenders were removed. The new truss is being fabricated and painted in the shop. Some issues were encountered with the design and installation of the new fender system, so the completion may be delayed into early next year.
Once completed this structure will provide a convenient and safer alternative to the elevated Grays Ferry Avenue Bridge. We will attempt to provide an alert to our readers of the installation date of the new structure so you can witness the monumental event!
