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.
Construction And Renovation In 2010 And 2011:
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 finished in the fall of 2011, but restarted in 2012 for expansion joint replacement.
