EASTON, PA – The following travel restrictions are scheduled for the week of September 10 along the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s 4.2-mile I-78 segment in western New Jersey:
- I-78 westbound – from the Phillipsburg/Routes 22 and 173 interchange (Exit 3) to the I-78 Toll Bridge – reduced two lanes (instead of three lanes) 10 p.m. to 1 p.m. (next day) Monday, Sept. 11 to Friday, Sept. 15.
- I-78 eastbound – from the I-78 Toll Bridge to the Phillipsburg/Routes 22 and 173 interchange (Exit 3) – reduced to two lanes (instead of three lanes) ONLY 10 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13 to 1 p.m. (next day – Thursday, Sept. 14).
The travel restrictions listed above are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations. Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, and reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.
The lane closures are needed for shoulder paving work and early construction activity in a 15-month-long project aimed at rehabilitating various overpasses and bridges along the Commission’s I-78 segment as well as the approach slabs immediately before and after those structures.
