WASHINGTON CROSSING TOLL SUPPORTED BRIDGE NOW OPEN Fifteen Commission Bridges Now Open, Five Remain Closed

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Saturday, July 1, 2006

MORRISVILLE
, PA  -
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced this morning that the Washington Crossing Toll Supported Bridge and its pedestrian sidewalk reopened to vehicular and pedestrian traffic at 10:15 am. Earlier today, the Commission announced that the Centre Bridge-Stockton Toll Supported Bridge has also reopened to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Yesterday, the Commission reopened the Riegelsville Toll Supported Bridge, the Riverton-Belvidere Toll Supported Bridge, and the Portland-Columbia Toll Supported Pedestrian Bridge. Fifteen of the Commission's bridges are now open to pedestrian and vehicular traffic, while five remain closed pending clearance from local transportation and emergency management officials that access roads are clear and safe prior to any bridge reopening and the completion of safety inspections.

The Commission commenced bridge inspections of the closed bridges early yesterday morning and will be working over the weekend to determine when the bridges can reopen to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The Commission will be coordinating the reopening of bridges with local emergency management and transportation officials to ensure that access roads in proximity to its bridges are safe for vehicular traffic prior to the reopening of a closed bridge.

For the latest bridge information, the public and media is encouraged to visit the Commission's website at www.drjtbc.org.
