The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission is planning New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge inspections that will impact traffic.
The commission said the two-lane bridge will be reduced to a single alternating-travel lane during off-peak daytime hours on Wednesday, April 5, and Thursday, April 6. The restriction is scheduled to be in effect between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on both dates.
A flagger stationed at each end of the work area will direct the single-lane, alternate-direction traffic.
Drivers have been advised to allow extra time to reach their destinations. They also asked drivers to exercise caution when traveling through an inspection/work area.
Weather, emergencies, and traffic issues could lead to the date and times of the work changing, the commission said.
The inspection of the bridge’s steel superstructure is the reason for the travel restriction. The inspections are being conducted as part of a planning and design process for a rehabilitation of the bridge that is being planned for 2024.
