TRENTON, NJ – The Lower Trenton “Trenton Makes” Bridge is scheduled to be closed to vehicular traffic and pedestrians 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, to 6 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 8.
During the closure period, affected passenger vehicles and pedestrians are advised to use the nearby Calhoun Street Bridge to cross the river between Trenton and Morrisville, PA.
Trucks and other larger vehicles – the preponderance of which are already prohibited from crossing the Lower Trenton Bridge – should use the Trenton-Morrisville (Route 1) Toll Bridge. (The Calhoun Street Bridge has a 3-ton weight restriction and an 8-foot height restriction and is posted with bridge monitors to prevent crossings of oversized/overweight vehicles.)
Approach roadway segments on both sides of the Lower Trenton Bridge will be impassable during the overnight bridge closure period. Variable message signs are already posted at those locations to alert motorists. The bridge’s “Trenton Makes The World Takes” sign also will be unlit Friday night.
The scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, traffic, and project mobilization considerations.
