The Betsy Ross Bridge is a continuous truss bridge spanning the Delaware River from Philadelphia to Pennsauken, New Jersey. It was originally planned as the Delair Bridge, after a paralleling vertical lift bridge owned by Pennsylvania Railroad (now used by Conrail and NJ Transit's Atlantic City Line), but was instead named for Betsy Ross, creator of the first American flag, making it the first bridge to be named after a woman.
