Route 22 Bridge Could Take Nearly Two Years

Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission seeks public comment on bridge project.

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission is giving the public an extra week to weigh in on its Route 22 bridge repairs, a project that could last near two years.

Beginning in June 2013, the commission will begin work on a roughly 3,000 foot stretch of Route 22 that includes the bridge and part of the surrounding highway. The project is funded by toll revenues.

The roughly $30 million upgrade is expected to take about 20 months. For most of that time, traffic on the bridge will be affected, all the the commission says it hopes to avoid shutting down the bridge.

The DRJTBC has a complete break-down of the project on its website. Visit the "contact us" link on the top of the page to offer your comments on the project between now and December 7.

And tell us in our comments section: Will the bridge work affect your daily commute? If so, do you plan on using the Free Bridge to get across the river?

Can they do a majority of the work over nite? They did that with the Reigleville bridge and it seemed to work out well. I know it is not as highly travelled, but aren't the night hours less travelled for this bridge as well?
