DELAWARE WATER GAP, PA — Westbound I-80 motorists might encounter brief travel delays during off-peak daytime hours Wednesday, November 2, approaching the Delaware Water Gap Toll Bridge, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) announced today.
The bridge’s left westbound lane is scheduled to be closed to traffic from 8 a.m. to noon on Wednesday so Commission maintenance crews can make a series of pothole repairs.
The lane closure will render the bridge’s Express E-ZPass toll collection lane inaccessible and this could result in delays at the bridge’s toll plaza, which consists of four mixed-mode (cash and E-ZPass) toll-collection lanes. A fifth lane at the toll plaza is E-ZPass only.
Motorists expecting to travel I-80 westbound across the Delaware Water Gap Toll Bridge on Wednesday morning are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations.
The scheduled restricted-travel period is subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations. Motorists should reduce their speeds whenever traveling through a designated work zone.
