EASTON, PA – All lane closures associated with the I-78 Bridges & Approach Slabs Rehabilitation Project will be suspended for the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
Intermittent single-lane closures are currently taking place during overnight hours along both the eastbound and westbound directions of the Commission’s 6.5-mile-long I-78 segment in western New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.
All project-related lane closures are to be lifted no later than 5 a.m. Friday, Sept. 1. Three travel lanes will then be available for the duration of the Labor Day holiday travel period. Project-related travel restrictions are prohibited from resuming until after noon Tuesday, Sept. 5.
Lane closures are needed for shoulder paving work as part of a project that will rehabilitate various overpasses and bridges along the Commission’s I-78 segment as well as the approach slabs immediately before and after those structures.
