EASTON, PA. - Both lanes of Route 22 West in Phillipsburg across the Easton-Phillipsburg Toll Bridge into Easton were reopened to unrestricted travel this afternoon, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
The lifting of westbound lane restrictions means motorists once again have full access to two travel lanes in each direction on the toll bridge and along adjoining segments of Route 22 for the first time since mid-July. The toll bridge and related portions of Route 22 in Easton and Phillipsburg had been restricted to single lanes for execution of the 2013 stage of a multi-year bridge rehabilitation project.
Two lanes of travel in each direction area expected to be provided through the project area for the remainder of December and all of January and February.
The project calls for a resumption of single-lane traffic patterns in early March, when work on the project's 2014 stage is to begin. A precise date for the onset of the second round of single-lane travel restrictions will be made in early 2014.
Although there will be a break in lane restrictions during the winter months, work will continue to take place on the project away from the traffic lanes. This will include painting-related activities and steel repair work beneath the bridge.
