BEN FRANKLIN BRIDGE TRAVEL ALERT - 2 LANES OPEN TO PA DURING MONDAY, 9/24 MORNING RUSH HOURS


Ben Franklin Bridge motorists are being asked to consider an alternate bridge or allow additional travel time during the morning rush hours on Monday, September 24. The bridge will have only two westbound lanes open to Pennsylvania instead of the normal four during weekday rush hours. There will be three lanes open eastbound to New Jersey. The restricted lane configuration is a result of Sunday’s weather that hampered a priority asphalt repair on the bridge’s westbound outer lane.

Update: 9/24 | 7:30 am
Priority paving repairs will continue through the morning rush hours. Consider alternate route. Work is currently 50% complete and expected to be finished by early afternoon.


Update: 9/24 | 9:30 am
Crews continue to make progress on priority paving work. Asphalt installed & cooling. Lane striping work to start shortly. Lanes expected to reopen by early afternoon.

Update: 9/24 | 12 pm
All lanes are open. Paving work completed and no delays at this time.
