DRJTBC - I-78 Toll Bridge PA Approach Paving Improvements
As a regional transportation agency, the Commission's service responsibility extends to more than a system of bridges crossing the Delaware River. The agency also owns and maintains portions of various roadways and 34 approach bridges serving the main-river bridges. The largest of these ancillary transportation networks is along I-78 in Northampton County, PA and Warren County, N.J., where the Commission is responsible for a combined distance of 6.45 miles of interstate highway.
In September 2012, the Commission began work on a project that aims to refurbish the 2.25 miles of I-78 that it owns in Pennsylvania. This stretch of roadway has not undergone any sort of major construction since it was opened to traffic in November 1989.
Latest Update - This project was virtually completed as of Friday, July 26. No addtional overnight lane closures are currently scheduled for this project. Three lanes in each direction are now available to handle overflow traffic from the single-lane travel patterns now in effect for the rehabilitation project at the nearby Easton-Phillipsburg (Route 22) Toll Bridge.
