Traffic Alert: Expect Delays Monday Night on Route 22 Bridge

Bridge commission says to expect delays Monday night into early Tuesday.

Drivers traveling from Pennsylvania into New Jersey on Route 22 Monday night could run into some delays, according to the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.

The commission says workers will be making repairs along the westbound lane of the toll bridge between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Tuesday. Drivers could see delays of up to 15 minutes, and are asked to give themselves extra time, or look for an alternate route.

The repairs are part of the DRJTBC's $30 million project to rehabilitate the bridge between Easton and Phillipsburg, as well as some of the surrounding exits and overpasses.

In mid-July, it diverted all traffic into two single lanes, closing the eastbound part of the highway from just before Fourth Street in Easton to the toll bridge in Phillipsburg. That pattern is expected to be in place until late December.

The overall project is expected to take until early 2015, and will involve Route 22 being reduced to one lane during part of that time, including much of this year and another nine months in 2014.
