I-76 Near Walt Whitman Bridge to Close for 20 Minute Intervals Between 11:30 P.M. on February 8 and 4:30 A.M. on February 9


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 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 8 and 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, February 9.

In addition, the right lane in each direction, as well as the ramps from I-76 westbound to Broad Street and Broad Street northbound to I-76 east, will be closed beginning after 7 p.m. on February 8.

The periodic closures are necessary to allow workers to install an overhead sign gantry between 10th and Broad Streets. 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 11:30 p.m. on February 8. The other 20-minute closures will occur in the early morning hours on February 9.

Work is scheduled to be completed by 4:30 a.m. on February 9.

Variable message signs across the region will advise motorists about the closures and delays. Detours will be set up to guide motorists around the closed ramps.

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