EASTON, Pa. - Drivers who use Route 22 through the Easton-Phillipsburg toll bridge area should brace for more travel delays.
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced Monday that it's planning to resume single-lane traffic patterns through the project zone on March 3rd.
Drivers are urged to avoid the area during peak commuting periods, and to use Interstate 78 as an alternate travel route when possible.
The single-lane travel restrictions are not expected to end until mid-December.
As construction activities ramp up during March, drivers can expect additional travel impacts around the project zone.
In Easton, the exit ramp Rt. 22 Westbound travelers use to access Route 611 will be closed, and the entire stretch of Route 611 beneath Rt. 22 will be closed for an extended period.
On the Phillipsburg side of the bridge, motorists can expect narrowed travel lanes and possible short-term stoppages.
The closures are part of a major rehab project which is expected to take until 2015 to complete. The bridge's road deck will be repaired and resurfaced, the bridge will be cleaned and painted and a drainage system will be installed.
