Work to block access to Centre Bridge-Stockton river span


A small section of Bridge Street in Stockton, N.J. is scheduled to be closed Monday, Aug. 28, to Thursday, Aug. 31, blocking motorists from using the Centre Bridge-Stockton Toll-Supported Bridge at the Delaware River in either direction on those dates.

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission is warning motorists who use the Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge to plan ahead for crossing the river and use alternate routes while the travel restriction is in effect.

A contractor for the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is scheduled to repair the two-lane single-span bridge that carries Bridge Street in Stockton over the Delaware and Raritan Feeder Canal. The work will effectively impede the ability of motorists to use the Commission’s Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge around-the-clock for four days.

NJDOT has identified the New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge (3.3 miles south) and the Uhlerstown-Frenchtown Toll-Supported Bridge (12.6 miles north) as detour routes across the Delaware River while access is blocked to/from the Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge.

Any concerns or questions should be directed to the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

The Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge connects Solebury with Stockton Borough and carries roughly 4,500 vehicles per day in both directions.
