PA and NJ Turnpikes: Delaware River Bridge Will Be Closed at Least Eight More Weeks

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports, “The Delaware River turnpike bridge, shut down after a fracture was discovered in a steel truss two weeks ago, will be closed for at least eight more weeks, officials announced Friday. The 60-year-old structure, which connects the Pennsylvania Turnpike with the New Jersey Turnpike and is used by 42,000 vehicles a day, could be reopened in April in a ‘best-case scenario,’ officials said.”
