PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – Travel restrictions will resume after the Labor Day holiday weekend for a construction project along the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s roughly 6.5-mile-long I-78 segment in western New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.

Lane closures for the I-78 Bridges & Approach Slabs Rehabilitation Project are expected to resume overnight on Tuesday, Sept. 5.  The full schedule is as follows:

  • I-78 east and west reduced to two lanes in each direction (instead of three lanes) between the Still Valley interchange (Exit 3, Phillipsburg) at mile marker 4.2 and the I-78 bridge over Rte. 611 in PA — 10 p.m. to 1 p.m. (next day) Tuesday, Sept. 5 through Friday, Sept. 8.

The travel restrictions listed above are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations.   Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, and reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.

The lane closures are needed for shoulder paving work, an early construction activity in a 15-month-long project aimed at rehabilitating various overpasses and bridges along the Commission’s I-78 segment as well as the approach slabs immediately before and after those structures.

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.
