The Interstate 78 Toll Bridge carries Interstate 78 that crosses the Delaware River between Williams Township, Pennsylvania and Phillipsburg, New Jersey, United States. Opened on November 21, 1989, it is operated by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) and is one of the newest bridges across the Delaware River.
The span has an overall length of 1,222 feet (372 m) and is a twin four girder span. There is only one toll plaza for the bridge; this is for traffic heading west into Pennsylvania. It has four conventional lanes and two Express E-Z Pass lanes. Just after the toll plaza is the Pennsylvania Welcome Center.
The jurisdiction of the DRJTBC for the bridge extends between the first interchange on either side of the bridge, which includes 2.2 miles west along I-78 to just west of Exit 75 in Pennsylvania and 4.2 miles east in New Jersey to Exit 3.
