PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – Overnight lane closures along the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s 4.2-mile I-78 roadway segment are scheduled to continue next week after the Independence Day holiday travel period ends on Monday.
The scheduled travel restrictions are as follows:
- I-78 Westbound: Reduced to a single-lane (two of three lanes closed) from slightly before the Routes 22/173 interchange (Exit 3) to the I-78 Toll Bridge 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. (next day) Monday, July 6
- I-78 Eastbound: Reduced to a single-lane (two of three lanes closed) from the I-78 Toll Bridge to the Routes 22/173 interchange (Exit 3) 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. (next day) Tuesday, July 7 through Friday July 10.
The lane closures will enable a contractor to repair/rehabilitate asphalt longitudinal joints between lanes along the roadway segment, which crosses through portions of Phillipsburg, Pohatcong, and Alpha. Backups and delays are not expected because the work is taking place during overnight hours when traffic volumes are lowest.
The scheduled lane closures are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations. Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, and reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.
