About Girard Point Bridge

  • Body Of Water Spanned: Schuylkill River
  • Bridge Type: Cantilever bridge
  • Locale: Philadelphia

The Girard Point Bridge is a double-decked cantilever bridge carrying Interstate 95 across the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The bridge was opened in 1973. It is the last crossing of the Schuylkill River, which dumps into the Delaware River less than half a mile downstream. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation selected Buckley and Co. as the main contractor and a joint venture between Alpha-Liberty Painting as the paint contractor. The bridge deck was milled and a new surface was poured and the structural steel is being painted in order to extend the life of the steel. Work is scheduled to finish in fall of 2011.
