I-76 Near Walt Whitman Bridge to Close for 20 Minute Intervals Between 10 P.M. on October 11 and 4 A.M. on October 12


Both the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-76 near the Walt Whitman Bridge will close to traffic for several 20-minute intervals between the hours of 10 p.m. on Monday, October 11 and 4 a.m. on Tuesday, October 12.

In addition, the ramp from I-76 eastbound exit to Packer Avenue/Darien Street will be closed during that timeframe.

The periodic closures are necessary to allow workers to install an overhead sign gantry in the area of 10th Street and Seventh Street. The sign gantry spans across both the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-76.

The first 20-minute roadway closure in both directions is scheduled to begin after 10 p.m. on October 11. The two other 20-minute closures will occur in the early morning hours on October 12.

Work is scheduled to be completed by 4:00 a.m. on October 12.

Variable message signs across the region will advise motorists about the closures and delays.

This work is related to the Walt Whitman Bridge Corridor Rehabilitation at I-76 project.
