PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – A series of postponed overnight single-lane travel patterns along the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s New Jersey I-78 roadway segment have been rescheduled to take place the week of August 9.
The lane closures were postponed last week due to disruptions caused by inclement weather.
The rescheduled travel restrictions are as follows:
- I-78 Westbound — Reduced to a single-lane (two of three lanes closed) from the Routes 22/173 interchange (Exit 3) to the I-78 Toll Bridge 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. (next day) Wednesday, August 12, and Thursday, August 13.
- I-78 Eastbound — Reduced to a single-lane (two of three lanes closed) from the I-78 Toll Bridge to the Routes 22/173 interchange (Exit 3) 8 p.m. Friday, August 14, to 5 a.m. Saturday, August 15.
The lane closures will enable a contractor to complete paving, lane striping and raised-pavement-markings installation work along the roadway segment, which crosses through portions of Phillipsburg, Pohatcong, and Alpha.
The scheduled lane closures 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.
