Camden County Has Plans for 2 Trail Bridges That Will Connect Philly to Cooper River Park and Beyond

By The Philadelphia Inquirer, Frank Kummer, September 2, 2022

Camden County is moving quickly to build one of two bridges that will serve as key connectors to a 32-mile trail system that will start at the Ben Franklin Bridge and will run the length of the county, eventually connecting with other trail systems that end at the Shore.

In the future, officials say, riders will be able to bike from Manayunk to Cape May and back.

Just the addition of these two Camden County bridges will give say, a cyclist coming from Philly and someone walking from Camden unimpeded access to the Cooper River system for the first time without having to cross major roadways.

“These bridges are critical components of the trail because without them, there is no continuous trail,” said Jeffrey Nash, a county commissioner and liaison to the parks department.
