TRENTON – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today announced that the exit ramp to Route 29 from Route 1 NB on the New Jersey side of the Trenton-Morrisville (Route 1) Toll Bridge during overnight hours late Tuesday into early Wednesday.

The exit ramp will be rendered inaccessible as a result of a right lane closure along Route 1 NB in the vicinity of the toll bridge from 10 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, to 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17.

The scheduled travel restrictions will allow a Commission contractor to install new security cameras and wireless radio transmitters.  The closure period also will be utilized by Commission maintenance crews to conduct drainage-system cleaning/repair work.

There will not be any designated detour routes during this brief closure period; motorists are advised to plan alternate routes.

The lane and ramp closures are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations.  Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, to reduce speeds, and to exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.

About The Commission

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was formed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey in 1934. It operates eight toll bridges and 12 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans.  (Note:  The first completed span of the new Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge opened to traffic during overnight hours on July 9, 2019.) The Commission is a self-supporting public-service agency that receives neither federal nor state tax dollars to finance its projects or operations. Funding for the operations, maintenance and upkeep of its bridges and related transportation facilities is solely derived from revenues collected at its toll bridges. The Commission’s jurisdiction extends along the Delaware River from the Philadelphia-Bucks County line north to the New Jersey/New York border. The bridges carried more than 139.2 million cars and trucks in 2018.
