No Overnight Parking This Week at I-78 Welcome Center in Eastern Pennsylvania

12161318-smallThe Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission on Friday, April 5 announced that the parking lot at the I-78 Welcome Center in eastern Pennsylvania — a popular resting spot for long-haul truckers — will be closed during overnight hours Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week, April 8-11.

The commission urged truckers to plan ahead and use alternative sites for any long-duration driving stoppages if they regularly use the I-78 Welcome Center’s parking lot as a place to rest during overnight hours.

The parking lot, which is located about two miles west of the I-78 Toll Bridge in Williams Township, Pa., will be closed 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Thursday.

The nightly closures will enable contractors to carry out paving and miscellaneous improvements to the access roadway and parking facilities for the Pennsylvania Welcome Center adjacent to the commission’s toll plaza on 1-78 westbound.

The work is part of the commission’s multi-faceted I-78 Toll Bridge Pennsylvania Approach Paving and Improvements Project, which got underway last September and is scheduled to reach substantial completion late next month.
