PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – Travel lane restrictions along the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s 6.5-mile-long I-78 roadway segment in Pennsylvania and New Jersey have been lifted and are not expected to be re-imposed until January 8 – at the earliest, the Commission announced today.

Various lane closures had been implemented on a weekly basis along the highway segment since September.  The travel restrictions allowed for construction/painting activities associated with the Commission’s I-78 Bridges and Approach Slabs Rehabilitation Project, which is expected to be completed in the autumn of 2018.  The current hiatus on lane closures was expected under the project’s construction schedule.

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 143.8 million cars and trucks in 2017.
