EASTON, Pa. -

Delays lasting up to 15 minutes may be faced by anyone heading toward New Jersey on Route 22 between 9 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Saturday.

The delays will be in the area of the Easton-Phillipsburg Toll Bridge over the Delaware River, advises the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.

Intermittent traffic stoppages are expected along Route 22 eastbound during the nine-hour overnight time period.

Drivers who will be using the highway between those hours should allow extra time or use Interstate 78 as an alternate.

The anticipated restricted travel period may change because of weather, traffic conditions or emergencies. If it can't be done Friday night, it will be rescheduled for the same hours Monday night.

The work is part of the Easton-Phillipsburg Toll Bridge Rehabilitation Project, which began in July.

Route 22 traffic is confined to single travel lanes in both directions until mid-December. More information about the project is available on line.
