One of the most well-known and used bridges in Bucks County will see a major rehabilitation project keep it in working condition. John McDevitt wrote about the project for KYW Newsradio.

The New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge, which connects the namesake towns in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, haws been in operation for almost 120 years. Hovering over the Delaware River, the bridge will undergo needed repairs and upgrades to make sure it is safe for the countless travelers who drive and walk from state to state.

“The work will entail replacing various pieces of the bridge’s steel superstructure [and] cleaning  and repainting of the bridge,” said Pete Peterson, a spokesperson for the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.

“[We’re replacing] fiberglass walkways to make them less slip resistant. And installing a programmable LED lighting system that would highlight the bridge’s architectural profile at nighttime.”

The commission hopes to see the project wrap up by 2024, the 120th anniversary of the bridge’s opening.
