A litany of traffic-pattern changes are set to take effect after the Labor Day holiday weekend comes to a close. The upcoming changes in project-related travel patterns will be as follows:

8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2, to 5 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 3 - Westbound traffic will be moved to the far right lane on the upstream side of the bridge; eastbound traffic will remain in the current far right lane on the bridge's downstream side. Once established, this split pattern will remain in effect well into the fall. This will allow for removal of the worn-out rutted portion of pavement in the center of the toll bridge and eventual repaving of that roadway segment. The new split pattern also will allow for completion of the center section of the replacement bridge that carries Route 22 traffic across Route 611 just west of the toll bridge in Easton.
5 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 3 - The Snyder Street exit will reopen to traffic.
8 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily, Tuesday, Sept. 2, through Friday, Sept. 5 - Route 22 westbound will be restricted to a single lane approaching the toll plaza. This will allow for further diamond grinding of the Route 22 roadway surface.
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, Tuesday, Sept. 2 through Friday, Sept. 5 - Bank Street in Easton near Route 22 will be restricted to a single alternating lane of traffic controlled by flaggers. This will allow for painting work on the overpass that carries Route 22 across Bank Street. (Note: Bank Street will be reopened during any period that travel at nearby Third Street is restricted to single lanes in each direction.)
9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Sept 2 through Friday - Third Street in the area of Route 22 may be subject to intermittent periods of single-lane travel in each direction. This restriction is needed to allow for installation of painting platforms beneath the Route 22 overpass across Third Street.
Motorists planning to travel through the project area over the course of the next week are advised to allow extra time to reach their destinations.

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

TOLL BRIDGE REHAB PROJECT TO MOVE INTO HOMESTRETCH NEXT WEEK
Last Major Traffic-Pattern Change Scheduled to Take Effect Overnight Tuesday

Contact: Joe Donnelly (215) 862-7693 or Ethan Vickers (412) 926-5730

EASTON, PA. - The nearly two-year-long rehabilitation of the Easton-Phillipsburg (Route 22) Toll Bridge will enter its last major work stage next week with the establishment of segregated single travel lanes along each direction of Route 22 through the project area.

Traffic along the highway in the work zone is currently restricted to single lanes in each direction on the bridge's downstream side. But during overnight hours Tuesday into Wednesday, a new split traffic pattern will be established: Route 22 westbound traffic will be restricted to the right lane on the bridge's upstream side while eastbound traffic will be restricted to the right lane on the bridge's downstream side.

This new split traffic pattern will result in a cordoned work area in the middle of the bridge where work crews can then conduct the last major elements of the rehabilitation that began in the early summer of last year.

"This project is about to go into the homestretch," said Joseph Resta, the Commission's executive director. "Solid progress continues to be made every week."

A litany of traffic-pattern changes are set to take effect after the Labor Day holiday weekend comes to a close. The upcoming changes in project-related travel patterns will be as follows:
