DELAWARE WATER GAP, PA – I-80 eastbound motorists could encounter single-lane travel restrictions on the New Jersey side of the Delaware Water Gap Toll Bridge next week, Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
Construction crews are expected to mill and then repave the nearly half-mile section of I-80 eastbound that the Commission owns and maintains in New Jersey immediately adjacent to the bridge.
Weather permitting, the work will take place on four nights immediately preceding the July 4 holiday weekend travel period.
To carry out the work, I-80 eastbound on the New Jersey side of the bridge is scheduled to be restricted to a single lane from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. (next morning) on the nights of Monday, June 28, through Thursday, July 1.
The repaving work is part of the Delaware Water Gap Bridge Westbound Toll Plaza Roadway and NJ Approach Repairs Project, which has been underway for two months. Until now, project work has been confined largely to the toll plaza area on the bridge’s Pennsylvania side.
The roughly six-month-long project is expected to reach completion later this year.
Note: The aforementioned travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergencies, traffic, and equipment/materials mobilization. Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.
