FRENCHTOWN, N.J. – Motorists, residents, and business owners will have two opportunities next week to learn about and provide comment on construction activities, travel restrictions, and other aspects of a planned 2025 rehabilitation of the 92-year-old Uhlerstown-Frenchtown Toll-Supported Bridge.

Open house display sessions about the project are scheduled as follows:


Delaware Valley Volunteer Fire Company
75 Headquarters Road
Erwina, PA.
Monday, June 24, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.


Frenchtown American Legion Post 113
510 Harrison Street
Frenchtown, N.J.
Tuesday, June 25, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.


The open houses will consist of viewing stations where the public may speak with members of the project design/engineering team, ask questions, and provide comment on the project.  The sessions will feature visual displays of general existing conditions, planned major project tasks, the current anticipated project schedule, anticipated travel restrictions and detours, the sequencing of work stages, and information about a programmable LED lighting system that would highlight the bridge’s architectural profile.

Following the open houses, the displayed materials will be added to a project-specific webpage — — the Commission recently established on its website. Individuals unable to attend the open house sessions could then view the materials and relay concerns or questions during a two-week-long public comment period scheduled to end 4 p.m. July 12.  Once the open house/public comment process is completed, project planning will proceed to final design.

The bridge rehabilitation is expected to include the following major tasks: repairs to various pieces of the bridge’s steel superstructure; cleaning and repainting the bridge’s steel superstructure and underlying bearings; repairs to the bridge’s abutments, piers, and retaining walls; and installation of a programmable LED lighting system to highlight the bridge’s architectural profile at night along the river.
