TRAVEL ADVISORY:
Construction Continues on the PA Turnpike's
Delaware River Bridge Project

Philadelphia, PA The Pennsylvania Turnpike is advising motorists that between Wednesday, May 30, and the beginning of November, expect varying single lane patterns on the Delaware River Bridge, eastbound and westbound, as crews set temporary barrier, re-deck the bridge, and pave the shoulders. Single lane patterns will be in affect from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily but crews are scheduled to work behind barrier 24-hours a day, seven days a week. All lanes will be open on holidays.

TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF TRAVELERS AND TURNPIKE WORKERS, MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO DRIVE WITH EXTRA CAUTION WHEN APPROACHING AND ENTERING CONSTRUCTION ZONES.
