The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission wants you to be in the know about a bridge makeover.

The commission is holding two open houses Wednesday on a construction project targeting the Easton- Phillipsburg Toll Bridge.

The first one was held at the Eastonian Suites Hotel.

The second is happening Wednesday night at the bridge's administration building on Broad Street in P-burg.

It goes until 8:00pm.

Plans call for repairing the bridge's deck, installing a drainage system, upgrading the toll plaza and fixing the concrete and masonry.

Construction is expected to begin next June and carry over into 2015.
