A $1.9 million contract has been awarded by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) to design the rehabilitation of the historic New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge, Patch (New Hope-Lambertville, PA) reports. The commission approved the contract with engineering consulting firm GPI/Greenman Pedersen, Inc., of Lebanon, NJ, on February 27. Anticipated work includes repairing or cleaning segments of the steel superstructure and its underlying bearings, replacing the walkway, and installing programmable LED lights — a modern first. Design is expected to conclude this fall, with construction bids to open in late 2023.
