Benjamin Franklin Bridge- was completed in 1926 but it took several years for people to get used to first of all having this wonderful bridge there but also to use it instead of the ferries to cross the Delaware. At its completion, it actually had the name of the Delaware River Port Authority Bridge and was the largest suspension bridge in the world.

The total length of the bridge is 9,650 feet with a span length of 1,750 feet. In 1956 it was renamed in honour of Benjamin Franklin.
