PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – Overnight single-lane travel patterns are scheduled for next week along the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s 4.2-mile segment of I-78 in New Jersey.
The travel restrictions will allow work crews to address a series of deteriorated asphalt joints along both directions of I-78 immediately east of the Commission’s I-78 Toll Bridge at the Delaware River. The highway segment, which is owned and maintained by the Commission, passes through portions of Phillipsburg, Alpha and Pohatcong. All work is being conducted during overnight hours, when traffic volumes are lowest. Travel impacts, if any, should be minor.
Next week’s project-related travel restrictions are as follows:
- I-78 WB beginning slightly before the Still Valley interchange (Exit 3) and continuing to just before the toll bridge – reduced to a single lane (two of three lanes closed) 10 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, to 7 a.m. Monday, Sept. 30.
- I-78 EB beginning on the Pennsylvania approach to the I-78 Toll Bridge and continuing to slightly before the Still Valley interchange (Exit 3) in New Jersey – reduced to a single lane (two of three lanes closed) 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. (next day) Monday, Sept. 30, through Friday, Oct. 4.
The scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations. Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, and reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.
