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.

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.
