YARDLEY, PA – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today awarded a two-year contract for traffic engineering consulting services to Pennoni Associates, Inc. of Philadelphia, PA.
Under the contract, the consultant is to provide annual traffic-volume and revenue projections for the Commission’s eight toll bridges. The work will include traffic engineering reports that chronicle traffic totals for 2021 and 2022 and project the traffic and revenues for 2022 and 2023.
The independent traffic engineering consultant’s projections assist the Commission in meeting the requirements of the Commission’s bond indenture, enabling the agency to secure the financing to carry out needed capital improvement projects.
The Commission voted unanimously at its Monday meeting to affirm the Pennoni consulting contract. The contract is for an amount not to exceed $60,000 — $30,000 per year — over the next two years. A contract provision allows the Commission to extend the arrangement for up to two additional two-year cycles at a later date.
