NEW HOPE, PA – A confined travel pattern is expected to be implemented next week along Bridge Street on the Pennsylvania side of the New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
Traffic exiting the bridge from New Jersey to Pennsylvania will be shifted slightly to the downstream side along Bridge Street so maintenance crews can engage in demolition and replacement of the deteriorated concrete apron and sidewalk fronting the Commission garage and storage facilities on the upstream side of the bridge’s New Hope approach.
The cordoned work area along Bridge Street is to be established Monday morning, Sept. 25, and could remain in place around-the-clock for up to two weeks. Concrete removal and replacement activities will take place 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily – weather permitting – once the work zone/restricted travel pattern is established.
Access to and from the bridge will remain available on the New Hope side, however motorists are urged to exercise caution and reduce speeds due to the temporary restricted travel pattern on Bridge Street.
