Lane closures scheduled on I-78 toll bridge’s NJ and PA approach highway segments April 22-26

NEW JERSEY – A series of daytime and overnight lane closures are scheduled to be implemented along portions of its I-78 Toll Bridge approach roadway segments in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, according to the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.

The travel restrictions are as follows:

  • 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday, Apr. 22 – I-78 westbound right lane closure (two of three lanes open) from milepost 3.4 to milepost 0.8 for installation of temporary concrete construction barriers along the road segment’s shoulder.
  • 8:00 p.m. Thursday, Apr. 25, to 5:00 a.m. Friday, Apr. 26 – I-78 eastbound center and rights lanes closed (one of three lanes open) for pothole repairs from the Morgan Hill Road/I-78 interchange (Exit 75) in Pennsylvania to the Routes 22 and 173/I-78 interchange (Exit 3) in New Jersey.
  • 10:00 p.m. Thursday, Apr. 25, to 7;00 a.m. Friday, Apr. 26 – I-78 westbound center and right lanes closed (one of three lanes open) for pothole repairs from the Routes 22 and 173/I-78 interchange (Exit 3) in New Jersey to the I-78 Toll Bridge at the Delaware River.

Motorists could encounter minor slowdowns and backups, the commission said.

The Commission urges motorists to reduce speeds and exercise caution whenever approaching active construction zones or restricted travel areas.

The lane closures are associated with the I-78 NJ Roadway Rehabilitation and Power & Communication Infrastructure Improvements Project.

The project primarily involves milling and paving work, including the three ramps the Commission owns at Exit 3. Other project tasks involve resurfacing of shoulders, installing shoulder rumble strips, roadway restriping, and sealing of the I-78 Toll Bridge’s concrete road deck and 14 other Commission-owned approach bridges in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The project also includes upgrades to the Commission’s security camera network at the I-78 Toll Bridge and the Commission’s I-78 approach highway segments in New Jersey (4.2 miles) and Pennsylvania (2.25 miles).
