MORRISVILLE, PA – Southbound Route 1 motorists may encounter traffic congestion and travel delays this weekend due to construction activities at the Trenton-Morrisville (Route 1) Toll Bridge, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.

Beginning 8 p.m. Friday, March 3, one of the E-ZPass-only lanes at the bridge’s toll plaza will be shut down.  The lane is to remain closed to traffic until roughly 2 p.m. Monday, March 6.

Tolls at the location are collected in the southbound direction only.  The other four lanes at the toll plaza – one E-ZPass-only and three mixed-mode (cash and E-ZPass transactions) – will remain in service throughout the weekend.

The toll lane closure is needed to allow for installation of new electronic toll collection equipment as part of a system-wide modernization project involving each of the Commission’s seven toll plazas along the river.

All scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations.  Motorists should reduce their speeds whenever traveling through designated work zones.

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 eight toll bridges and 12 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans.  (Note:  The first completed span of the new Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge opened to traffic during overnight hours on July 9, 2019.) 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 139.2 million cars and trucks in 2018.
