Two-Way Travel in Single Lanes at Northampton Street Bridge ('the free bridge') Continues in Week of April 24

A 24/7 lane closure remains in effect at the Northampton Street Bridge (the Easton-Phillipsburg free bridge).

Travel is restricted to single lanes in each direction with manual control of the traffic signal at the bridge’s Easton end during peak travel periods (1 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays).

Motorists using the bridge are urged to allow additional time to reach their destinations and avoid peak-period travel at the bridge whenever possible.

At the Town of Phillipsburg's request, the Commission continues to pursue the possibility of converting the bridge to two westbound-only lanes at a future date.
