    Tacony Palmyra Bridge

    I'm looking for information on how to get to Temple Blvd. on the north side of Rt. 73 from the Tacony Palmyra Bridge. I know how to get to the south walkway on the PA side but don't know what to do in NJ. Looking at Google maps satellite view it seems that I should get off before the toll plaza at the bridge authority parking lot, go back towards the river and cross under the roadway, is this correct?

    I believe you are correct. Funny, I grew up in Palmyra, and one parent lived there until circa 2003, but that bridge plaza area has been reworked several times since I did any bicycling there. At an off traffic hour, you could go down 73 to the first left turn slot where there's a light to turn onto Souder Street. Souder heads up to Temple Boulevard and across, but anything involving Rte 73 might be more exciting than desired however!

    Thanks. Google maps bicycling directions tells me to walk my bike across 73 but I thought there was a better option. I'll post an update when I do the ride.
