Maps display single-lane traffic on Route 22 bridge

Traffic pattern changes coming next week

EASTON, Pa. - A pair of maps showing single-lane traffic patterns going into effect next week were released Thursday by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.

The traffic changes will occur in both directions of Route 22 in the vicinity of the Easton-Phillipsburg Toll Bridge over the Delaware River.

Both directions of Route 22 will be limited to single lanes of travel approaching both sides of the bridge until December.

The commission now states work to impose the lane restrictions will begin at 9:30 a.m. Monday, but may take until Thursday to complete.

By Tuesday, reported the commission, eastbound commuters will face the single-lane restrictions for the first time this year.

Westbound motorists heading toward Pennsylvania on Route 22 should be prepared for delays reaching their destinations, particularly from 4-7 p.m. weekdays.

Beginning after the Thursday morning rush hour, westbound traffic also will face "short, narrow lane crossovers" as drivers approach the bridge.

Eastbound motorists heading toward New Jersey should be prepared for delays as well, especially between 6 and 9 a.m.

The new maps depict what the traffic pattern for the project's 2014 construction stage will look like once it is fully in place by Thursday.

To see the maps, go to the commission's webpage. Click on the icon for the toll bridge project, scroll down to Resources and click on the maps.
