NEW HOPE, PA – A confined travel pattern is expected to be implemented next week along Bridge Street on the Pennsylvania side of the New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.

Traffic exiting the bridge from New Jersey to Pennsylvania will be shifted slightly to the downstream side along Bridge Street so maintenance crews can engage in demolition and replacement of the deteriorated concrete apron and sidewalk fronting the Commission garage and storage facilities on the upstream side of the bridge’s New Hope approach.

The cordoned work area along Bridge Street is to be established Monday morning, Sept. 25, and could remain in place around-the-clock for up to two weeks.   Concrete removal and replacement activities will take place 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily – weather permitting – once the work zone/restricted travel pattern is established.

Access to and from the bridge will remain available on the New Hope side, however motorists are urged to exercise caution and reduce speeds due to the temporary restricted travel pattern on Bridge Street.

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.
