DELAWARE WATER GAP, PA – Motorists travelling I-80 between Pennsylvania and New Jersey could encounter brief delays during off-peak daytime periods next week at the Delaware Water Gap Toll Bridge, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) announced today.

The following lane closures are schedule to be in effect at the bridge:

– Tuesday, November 29, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. — single travel lane only for eastbound traffic (both westbound lanes open).
– Wednesday, November 30, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. — single travel lane only for westbound traffic (both eastbound lanes open).
– Thursday, December 1, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. — only single lanes of travel available in both the eastbound and westbound directions.

The scheduled lane closures are needed to allow a Commission contractor to install new security cameras along the bridge.

The scheduled lane closures are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations.  Motorists should reduce their speeds whenever traveling through designated work zones.

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.
