Commodore Barry Bridge Traffic Pattern Change

On Monday, October 20, the Commodore Barry Bridge Joint Replacement Project moves into its third and final stage resulting in a new traffic pattern.

The two southernmost lanes of the bridge will be closed and traffic on the other three lanes will be adjusted to better accommodate rush hour traffic. During the morning rush hour two lanes will be open westbound with one lane open eastbound. During the afternoon rush hour two lanes will be open eastbound with one lane open westbound. 

In addition, the on ramp from Route 13/9th Street in Chester to the Commodore Barry Bridge will be closed at noon on Saturday, October 18, and remain closed for the duration of the construction. 

It’s expected the project will be completed by the middle of January. 

The Delaware River Port Authority is a regional transportation agency. DRPA owns and operates the Benjamin Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross Bridges, and PATCO, the Philadelphia Cruise Terminal and the RiverLink Ferry.
