CANAL BRIDGE REPAIR WORK IN STOCKTON, NJ TO BLOCK CENTRE BRIDGE-STOCKTON BRIDGE AUG. 28-31
NJDOT Work to Detour Traffic to Other River Crossings
STOCKTON, N.J. – A small section of Bridge Street in Stockton, N.J. is scheduled to be closed Monday, Aug. 28, to Thursday, Aug. 31, blocking motorists from using the Centre Bridge-Stockton Toll-Supported Bridge at the Delaware River in either direction on those dates.
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission is warning motorists who use the Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge to plan ahead for crossing the river and use alternate routes while the travel restriction is in effect.
A contractor for the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is scheduled to repair the two-lane single-span bridge that carries Bridge Street in Stockton over the Delaware and Raritan Feeder Canal. The work will effectively impede the ability of motorists to use the Commission’s Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge around-the-clock for four days.
NJDOT has identified the New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge (3.3 miles south) and the Uhlerstown-Frenchtown Toll-Supported Bridge (12.6 miles north) as detour routes across the Delaware River while access is blocked to/from the Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge.
Any concerns or questions should be directed to the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
The Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge connects Solebury Township, PA. with Stockton Borough, N.J. The bridge carries roughly 4,500 vehicles per day in both directions.
About the Commission
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was formed statutorily by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey in 1934 and Congress ratified the bi-state agreement under the Compact Clause of U.S. Constitution in August 1935. The agency operates eight toll bridges and 12 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans. 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. More than 128.1 million cars and trucks crossed Commission bridges in 2022. For more information, please go to: www.drjtbc.org.
