EASTON, PA – All lane closures associated with the I-78 Bridges & Approach Slabs Rehabilitation Project will be suspended for the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.

Intermittent single-lane closures are currently taking place during overnight hours along both the eastbound and westbound directions of the Commission’s 6.5-mile-long I-78 segment in western New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.

All project-related lane closures are to be lifted no later than 5 a.m. Friday, Sept. 1.  Three travel lanes will then be available for the duration of the Labor Day holiday travel period.  Project-related travel restrictions are prohibited from resuming until after noon Tuesday, Sept. 5.

Lane closures are needed for shoulder paving work as part of a project that will rehabilitate various overpasses and bridges along the Commission’s I-78 segment as well as the approach slabs immediately before and after those structures.

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 seven toll bridges and 13 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. The bridges carried more than 144.5 million cars and trucks in 2016.
