A six-week construction project began Oct. 4 along the 4.2 miles of I-78 owned by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River.
The project will address a variety of deteriorated longitudinal and transverse asphalt joints along I-78 between U.S. Route 22/NJ Route 173 and the commission’s I-78 toll bridge. The highway segment crosses through portions of three Warren County communities: Pohatcong Township, Alpha Borough and the Town of Phillipsburg.
Other anticipated project work includes pothole repairs, reinstallation of removed raised pavement markings and line restriping.
The work is planned for overnight hours, when traffic volumes are lowest. Up to two of three lanes will be closed both westbound and eastbound.
