PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today announced the second week of overnight lane closures for a limited-scope roadway repair project currently underway along a four-mile segment of I-78 in New Jersey.
The travel restrictions will allow work crews to address a series of deteriorated asphalt joints along both directions of I-78 immediately east of the Commission’s I-78 Toll Bridge at the Delaware River. The highway segment, which is owned and maintained by the Commission, passes through portions of Phillipsburg, Alpha and Pohatcong. All work is being conducted during overnight hours, when traffic volumes are lowest.
The travel restrictions for the project next week are as follows:
- I-78 WB beginning in the vicinity of the Still Valley interchange (Exit 3) and continuing to just before the toll bridge – reduced to a single lane (two of three lanes closed) 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. (next day) Monday, Sept. 23, through Friday, Sept. 27.
The scheduled travel restrictions 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.
