The Washington Crossing Toll-Supported Bridge is scheduled to be restricted to alternating single-lane travel on the New Jersey side from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 16.

The alternating travel pattern will allow for the pouring of a concrete foundation that will support a cross walk signal on the bridge’s New Jersey side.

Motorists are advised to adjust their travel schedules or plan alternate routes during the eight-hour-long restricted travel period.

The narrow, two-lane, 115-year-old steel truss bridge connects Upper Makefield Township, PA, with Hopewell Township, PA.  The bridge has a 15 MPH speed limit and a three-ton load restriction.

 

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.
