FRANKLIN, NJ – The New Jersey Department of Transportation will begin work next week to replace the County Route 518 bridge over the Delaware and Raritan Canal.

Daytime work from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, is expected to begin on or about June 1, with a one-direction closure and detour. 

The bridge will be closed to eastbound traffic moving toward Route 27 during the daytime, but will re-open after 4 p.m. and on weekends.  Westbound traffic traveling toward Route 206 will be maintained on the bridge during daytime work hours. 

Full closure of the bridge with an around-the-clock detour is expected to begin on or about July 6 and continue until Aug. 5.  The NJDOT’s construction schedule is weather-dependent and subject to change.
