Pa Turnpike closes Delaware River Bridge into N.J.
The PA Turnpike Commission has closed the Delaware River Bridge that links turnpikes in PA and New Jersey due to high winds and a failure of the lighting on the bridge. The bridge will still accommodate the movement of emergency vehicles and equipment as needed but will be closed to nonessential vehicles until further notice. The N.J. Turnpike has stopped westbound traffic from crossing into PA, and the PA Turnpike is u-turning all eastbound traffic at the Delaware River Toll Plaza.
