The bridge is set to see a major restoration.

One of the most recognized and used bridges in Bucks County will be undergoing a massive restoration in order to keep it in working condition.

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission has announced that the New Hope-Lambertville Toll-Supported Bridge will soon be involved in a massive restoration project, with plans to begin the project in 2024. As of now, the design process is in place to see where the bridge needs improvements.

The last rehabilitation took place back in 2004. According to the commission, some of the tasks to be undertaken in the project include:

  • Repair various pieces of the bridge’s steel superstructure;
  • Clean and repaint the bridge’s steel superstructure and underlying bearings;
  • Replace the current fiberglass walkway panels with an improved system of quieter, slip-resistant fiber-reinforced-polymer panels; and
  • Install a programmable LED lighting system to highlight the bridge’s architectural profile at night along the river.  This would be the first time the bridge has ever been outfitted with such a lighting system.

The bridge, which connects New Hope with Lambertville, New Jersey, is regularly used by drivers and walkers to commute between the two popular towns.
