Bridges Leading to Harrisburg

Walnut Street and Market Street bridges over Susquehanna River leading to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The Walnut Street Bridge also known as The People’s Bridge, is a truss bridge that spanned the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg until 1996. Built in 1890, it is the oldest remaining bridge connecting Harrisburg’s downtown and Riverfront Park with City Island. Since flooding in 1996 collapsed sections of the western span, it no longer connects to the West Shore.

The Market Street Bridge is a stone arch bridge that spans the Susquehanna River between Harrisburg and Wormleysburg, Pennsylvania. The current structure is the third bridge built at its current location and is the second oldest remaining bridge in Harrisburg.
