    Linking the cities of Palmyra, New Jersey and Tacony (an historic neighborhood within Philadelphia) is the over 3,600 foot long Tacony-Palmyra Bridge. Built between 1928-29 for about $4 million, the bridge is comprised of several different types of structures, including a through-tied arch at the middle, which is also a functioning drawbridge. Cyclists and pedestrians can travel across via the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge Walkway, which provides a separate lane separated by a wrought iron beams from vehicular traffic and is open 24 hours a day. Enjoy stunning views of the Delaware River on an approximate 20 minute stroll (note that cyclists are required to walk bicycles across the span).

     

    In Pennsylvania, the walkway ends at Lardner’s Point Park. At the present time it does not link directly to other trails in the Circuit, however via an on-road route it is possible to travel north to connect with the Pennypack Trail. In New Jersey, via an on-road route, link to a segment of the Delaware River Heritage Trail (plans call for eventually connecting these two off-road), as well as connecting to the proposed Pennsauken Waterfront Trail.

     

    The Tacony-Palmyra Bridge Walkway is a part of the Circuit Trails, a vast regional network of hundreds of miles of multi-use trails that is growing in size each year. Explore 100s of miles of happy at CircuitTrails.org
