Expansion Joint Repair on Delaware Bound Span this weekend; Nighttime Lane Closures Schedule for Saturday, May 12

NEW CASTLE, Del. – On May 12-13, the Delaware River and Bay Authority’s (DRBA) contractor, JD Eckman of Atglen, PA, will be working to repair an expansion joint on the Delaware bound span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge beginning Saturday night and continuing into early Sunday morning.

•   This repair work will require the closure of three lanes on the Delaware bound span on Saturday, May 12 from 9:00P to 5:00A. Only the right lane will be open to traffic.
•   On Sunday morning from 5:00A – 9:00A, two right lanes on the same Delaware bound bridge will be closed to complete the expansion joint repair.

Motorists should expect delays during the construction time period. The safety of the traveling public and on-site highway contractors is the agency’s highest priority. Travelers are urged to be careful and stay alert in and around construction zones, obey all posted speed limit signs, and add some additional time to reach their final destination.
