MORRISVILLE, PA – Southbound Route 1 motorists may encounter traffic congestion and travel delays this weekend due to construction activities at the Trenton-Morrisville (Route 1) Toll Bridge, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
Beginning 8 p.m. Friday, March 3, one of the E-ZPass-only lanes at the bridge’s toll plaza will be shut down. The lane is to remain closed to traffic until roughly 2 p.m. Monday, March 6.
Tolls at the location are collected in the southbound direction only. The other four lanes at the toll plaza – one E-ZPass-only and three mixed-mode (cash and E-ZPass transactions) – will remain in service throughout the weekend.
The toll lane closure is needed to allow for installation of new electronic toll collection equipment as part of a system-wide modernization project involving each of the Commission’s seven toll plazas along the river.
All scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations. Motorists should reduce their speeds whenever traveling through designated work zones.
