The I-78 Welcome Center — owned by the Commission and jointly operated by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation — is scheduled to reopen for public use early Saturday, June 6.

The facility, which has public bathrooms and travel information for the state of Pennsylvania, is adjacent to the Commission’s I-78 Toll Plaza in Williams Township, PA.

The Commission temporarily closed the facility March 17 in the interest of public health and safety due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The facility’s bathrooms will be open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, but access can be interrupted by stepped-up cleaning due to COVID-19.  PennDOT’s travel-information area, however, will have reduced hours — 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

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.
