STOCKTON, N.J. – The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) has informed the Commission that the upcoming repair project along a small section of Bridge Street in Stockton, N.J. will also block walkway access at the Centre Bridge-Stockton Toll-Supported Bridge from Monday, Aug. 28, through Thursday, Aug. 31.
On those four dates next week, an NJDOT contractor is scheduled to repair the two-lane single-span bridge that carries Bridge Street in Stockton over the Delaware and Raritan Feeder Canal. The work will effectively prevent the public – motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists – from using the Commission’s Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge.
The walkway across the river at Centre Bridge-Stockton is a popular connection point for walkers and bicyclists who make loop trips on canal towpaths flanking the river in New Jersey (Delaware & Raritan Canal State Park) and in Pennsylvania (Delaware Canal State Park).
When the Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge’s walkway is impeded, the closest river bridges with walkways will be the New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge (3.3 miles south) and the Lumberville-Raven Rock Toll-Supported Pedestrian Bridge (3.4 miles north).
Any concerns or questions should be directed to the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
About the Commission
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was formed statutorily by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey in 1934 and Congress ratified the bi-state agreement under the Compact Clause of U.S. Constitution in August 1935. The agency operates eight toll bridges and 12 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans. 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. More than 128.1 million cars and trucks crossed Commission bridges in 2022. For more information, please go to: www.drjtbc.org.
