Open house on I-78 E-ZPASS System
When: TODAY, Tuesday, December 22, 2009 from 3p.m. to 7 p.m.
Where: Easton Quality Inn, 185 S. Third St., Easton.
What: The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission is working to establish Express E-ZPass/Open Road Tolling at the I-78 bridge toll in Williams Township, PA. The first phase is scheduled to begin on January 8, with an estimated project completion on Memorial Day weekend in 2010.
If you have traveled westbound on I-78 from New Jersey into the Lehigh Valley during rush hour times (and, sometimes, during the evening times), you understand that the toll plaza can get pretty backed up. Open Road Tolling should go a long way in easing some of the traffic tension there. But public involvement is needed in the planning process, and for this reason, I encourage you to stop by the meeting, even briefly.
