The University Avenue Bridge crosses the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The four-lane bridge links University Avenue in West Philadelphia with South 34th Street in the Grays Ferry section of South Philadelphia. It measures 536 feet long, 100 feet wide, and clears the water by 30 feet. Built in 1930, the bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 26, 1994. The more recent and nearby Passyunk Avenue Bridge is also a double leaf bascule drawbridge.
