New Hope-Lambertville toll bridge to shut overnight Wednesday

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today that the New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic for at least four hours during overnight hours between Wednesday, December 12, and Thursday, December 13.

The vehicular traffic shutdown is needed to allow Commission maintenance workers to install a new overhead weight-limit sign on the bridge’s New Hope side. The sign that previously hung at the location had been damaged when Superstorm Sandy passed through the region on October 29.

The sign-installation procedure is expected to take place between 10 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday, with up to four hours of the eight-hour period involving a full closure of the bridge’s two vehicular travel lanes. Alternating single-lane passage should be possible during the remaining time once the sign is initially bolted into place.
