DELAWARE WATER GAP, PA – Off-peak, daytime single-lane travel patterns are scheduled to be implemented at the Delaware Water Gap (I-80) Toll Bridge next week, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.
The travel restrictions are needed so a contractor can installation energy-efficient LED roadway lighting on the bridge and its approach roadways. The lighting replacement work is part of a system-wide project aimed at removing aging, high-maintenance light systems at six of the Commission’s seven toll bridges. The LED replacement lights are a significant upgrade because they use up to 70 percent less energy, they have a significantly longer service life, they are brighter, and they can provide more uniform illumination over a wider surface area than other lighting systems.
To facilitate the safe installation of the new lights, single-lane travel configurations are scheduled to be implemented on I-80 and at the toll bridge as follows:
- 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb 13 — I-80 westbound only on New Jersey side
- 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14 to Friday, Feb. 16 – I-80 both direction on the bridge
The above-listed scheduled travel restrictions are subject to postponement and 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.
