Info

The Easton–Phillipsburg Toll Bridge is a bridge that carries U.S. Route 22 over the Delaware River. The bridge is between Easton, Pennsylvania and Phillipsburg, New Jersey, United States. The bridge opened on January 14, 1938, and is operated by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission. The main river bridge consists of a 540-foot (160 m) Petit through-truss span over the river; a 430-foot (130 m), five-span plate-girder viaduct at the New Jersey approach; and a 40-foot (12 m) pre-stressed concrete boxbeam span over PA Route 611 on the Pennsylvania approach.
The overall length is 1,020 feet (310 m). The four-lane facility has a roadway width of 40 feet (12 m). There are 8-foot (2.4 m) concrete pedestrian sidewalks outside the trusses on each side. The bridge is the 9th-longest (main span) simple truss and 9th-longest (main span) steel truss in the United States.
When it was constructed in 1938, the bridge ranked first as the longest steel truss in the nation—a distinction it held for 19 years. The toll plaza collects only westbound lanes going into Pennsylvania, and includes the E-Z Pass system. The toll rate per car is $1.00.
