Lane closure, detour Thursday near New Hope-Lamberville (Route 202) toll bridge

202 bridgeThe Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today announced that a variety of travel restrictions will be employed on Thursday, Sept. 11 along the Route 202 approach to the New Hope-Lambertville toll bridge in Solebury.

Traffic shifts, a lane closure and a detour will be employed over the course of a 12-hour period, enabling work crews to mill and repave a roughly 2,500-foot section of northbound Route 202 between the roadway’s intersection with Lower York Road and the overpass that carries Route 202 traffic across River Road/Route 32 just north of New Hope.

Travel restrictions will be as follows:

  • 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. – Southbound traffic will be shifted to the right shoulder and northbound traffic will be shifted into the southbound lane.
  • 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. – Southbound traffic will be shifted back to its normal lane, and northbound traffic will be detoured off Route 202 at Lower York Road. Northbound traffic will then be directed down Lower York Road to River Road/Route 32, and then to the entry ramp leading back onto Route 202 north.

The Commission advises motorists to expect minor delays if they travel along Route 202 on the Pennsylvania side of the New Hope-Lambertville Toll Bridge while paving work is taking place Thursday.

The travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations, and drivers should reduce their speeds whenever traveling through a designated work zone.
