The delivery and pouring of concrete for a crosswalk-signal foundation could cause slight travel delays in the vicinity of the Washington Crossing Toll-Supported Bridge on Tuesday, Nov. 17 or Wednesday, Nov. 18, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
Work crews are in the process of excavating and making other preparations for the crosswalk signal foundations today and tomorrow at the bridge’s New Jersey approach.
On Tuesday or Wednesday, the placement of concrete is expected to necessitate a period of alternating single-lane travel at the bridge, with vehicle movements controlled by flaggers. This travel restriction is expected to last for around an hour and can begin any time between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Because of the uncertainty of when the concrete delivery will occur, motorists are urged to allow additional time to reach their destinations if they plan to use the bridge during daytime hours on Tuesday or Wednesday.
The aforementioned travel restriction is subject to change due to weather, emergencies, and traffic considerations. Motorists are urged to exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.
