The Jersey barriers that created a bypass lane during construction on the Delaware Memorial Bridge are being removed, with the goal of having all eight lanes open this weekend.
The three left lanes will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily, Monday-Wednesday, May 22-24, to remove the concrete barriers. During this process, only the right lane will be open to traffic.
On the same three days, the left lane will remain closed. A second lane will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for line stripping and concrete finishing work.
This week marks the end of a second phase of a major construction project to rehabilitate the bridge deck.
David Hoppenjans, chief engineer for the Delaware River and Bay Authority, said that the three quarters of the New Jersey-bound span is now fully rebuilt.
The last phase, which is expected to begin after Labor Day, will focus on the right two lanes from the midpoint of the bridge to the New Jersey side of the structure.
