Delaware River Bridge

Delaware River Bridge Reconstruction

Construction 2025 or Later

This section will include the replacement of the existing Delaware River Bridge. The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (Commission), in conjunction with the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (Authority), has initiated environmental studies and preliminary engineering for the replacement of the Delaware River Bridge as part of the interchange between the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-276) and Interstate 95 (I-95) in Bristol Township, Bucks County. Previously, the intent was to build a new bridge and rehabilitate the existing bridge. Due to a fracture of one of the beams a few years ago, the Commission is moving forward with replacing the bridge in its entirety. In order for the required studies and engineering design to be performed, it may be necessary for employees and/or agents of the Commission to enter properties in the vicinity of the proposed project limits to gather information essential to the completion of surveys, reports and required permit applications.

Please note that this is a large project and is in the beginning stages of development. It's anticipated that it will take several years to progress the design before construction will start.
