Trenton Makes Bridge Walkway to Close for Redecking Work Thursday.
The Trenton Makes Bridge pedestrian walkway will close beginning Thursday for re-decking the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced Monday.
Work crews are expected to remove the walkway’s weathered wooden planks and replace them with new composite decking between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. this Thursday, and on Wednesday, July 15, and Friday, July 17.
The 1,022-foot-long, 8-foot-wide walkway was last replaced six years ago officials said.
Pedestrians and bicyclists are urged to use the walkway at the nearby Calhoun Street Toll-Supported Bridge (nine-tenths of a mile upstream) to cross the Delaware River when the Lower Trenton Bridge’s walkway is closed.
The Trenton-Morrisville (Route 1) Toll Bridge does not have pedestrian/bicycle access.
As with any Commission construction or work activity, the schedule walkway closures are subject to change due to weather, traffic conditions and emergencies, said officials.
