The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission says the Washington Crossing Toll-Supported Bridge between Bucks County, PA and Mercer County, N.J. is scheduled to be closed in both directions from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 8.
Motorists are advised to plan alternate routes while the bridge is out of service. The two closest river bridges are the Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge 2.5 miles to the south, and the New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge 6.9 miles to the north.
The closure is needed at Washington Crossing so commission maintenance personnel can repaint the yellow center line on the bridge’s open-grate steel deck.
The travel restriction is subject to change due to weather, emergencies, traffic, and staffing considerations.
