Unexpected delays to the maintenance work on the National Historic Landmark Roebling Bridge (Roebling’s Delaware Aqueduct) will require closing the roadway to vehicular traffic for four consecutive days from 6:00 AM Monday through 6:00 PM Thursday between October 31 and November 17, 2016. The specific dates of the four-day closure are not now known, as the closure will occur during a week when the weather is predicted to be “warm and dry”. The warm and dry conditions are required to properly seal the concrete bridge deck.
Repairs that require the bridge to be closed include expansion joint replacement and sealing of the concrete deck.
Walkways will remain open at all times for pedestrian use. Vehicles will be allowed to cross the structure on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The New York Parking Lot will be closed throughout the construction period.
