DRPA's KYW Regional Affairs Council Message

Since 1926, the Delaware River Port Authority has provided quality cross-river transportation. Today, with as many as 300,000 motorists crossing the Benjamin Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross bridges daily and more than 34,000 riders daily on PATCO, there is no doubt that the DRPA serves as an important part of the region’s transportation infrastructure.

As with anything that has been in operation for decades, ongoing maintenance and repairs are critical to keeping our facilities safe, secure and serviceable. To address these maintenance issues we must invest more than one billion dollars in to capital improvement projects over the next five years. As part of the capital program, the bridges and PATCO need to undergo significant repairs and upgrades necessary for their continued use and safety now and into the future.

The Delaware River Port Authority and PATCO, We Keep the Region Moving!
