“Critical phase” of Walt Whitman Bridge repairs begins Wednesday

    Wednesday night brings what the DRPA calls a “critical phase” in the Walt Whitman Bridge repairs as the re-decking project commences.

    The three-year, $130 million project began this week as the Delaware River Port Authority moves to revamp the bridge’s roadways.

    Starting 8 p.m. Wednesday, the righthand eastbound lane will be closed for the next five months. Your Labor Day weekend Shore commute is sounding a little less fun, isn’t it?
