Construction work on the final phase of the major construction project to rehabilitate the driving surface of the New Jersey bound span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge will begin on or about the night of Sept. 4th.
Once lane closures have been set up, two right lanes of the northbound span will be closed until Thanksgiving week.
From Sept. 4 to Sept. 8, crews will work to establish the bypass lane on the Delaware bound span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
While the bypass lane is being created, the two left lanes of the Delaware bound bridge will be closed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m with a third lane closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Once opened to traffic this bypass lane will reroute one lane of the New Jersey bound traffic to the exterior lane of the Delaware bound bridge and will only accommodate cars headed for the New Jersey Turnpike.
DRBA engineers have designed the project to minimize traffic congestion on the spans; however, congestion may still occur during rush hour periods and peak weekend travel times.
