EASTON, PA – The two Express E-ZPass lanes at the I-78 Toll Plaza in Williams Township, PA are scheduled to be closed for nearby road surface repairs 6 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, March 9, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
The Express E-ZPass lanes carry the bulk of traffic at the busy tolling point. While those lanes are out of service, all toll traffic will need to use the adjoining four-lane toll-booth facility that handles both cash and E-ZPass transactions.
Backups and delays are possible 9 a.m. to noon as westbound truck traffic increases during the day toward the Lehigh Valley’s warehouse/distribution centers.
The left westbound travel lane will be closed from the toll plaza to the vicinity of the Morgan Hill interchange (Exit 75). The cordoned area will enable Commission maintenance personnel to fix a bump that has developed in the left-lane driving surface.
The scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergencies, and traffic situations. Motorists are urged to reduce speeds, allow extra time to reach their destinations, and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.
