Chestnut's already showing signs of decay from the perspective the Schuylkill River Park offers, so I would guess that replacements for Chestnut, Spring Garden, and West River together would be called for almost as soon as the South Street Bridge is rebuilt.

And since Chestnut has easily the richest architectural heritage of the late bridges (ever seen photos of Kneass' original?) and Spring Garden and West River have the most unique siting (they cross one another), these are the best sites in the city for a good architect to sink his teeth into.
