EWING, NJ – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today announced that I-95 southbound is scheduled to be reduced to a single lane in the vicinity of the Scudder Falls Bridge during three overnight periods next week.

The single-lane travel restriction is needed for the clearing and hoisting of trees off a river island that will be affected by upcoming construction of the Scudder Falls Replacement Bridge.

When in effect, the scheduled single-lane travel pattern will begin near the Bear Tavern Road/Route 579 interchange (Exit 2) in Ewing, N.J. and continue to the southern end of the bridge in Lower Makefield, PA. The times and dates will be as follows:

  • 8 p.m. Monday, April 10, to 6 a.m. Tuesday, April 11;
  • 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, to 6 a.m. Wednesday, April 12; and
  • 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 12, to 6 a.m. Thursday, April 13.

Motorist impacts – if any – are expected to be minor because the single-lane travel restrictions will be in place when traffic volumes are at their lowest levels.

The scheduled restricted travel periods are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations. Motorists should reduce their speeds whenever traveling through designated work zones.

About The Commission
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was formed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey in 1934. It operates seven toll bridges and 13 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans. The Commission is a self-supporting public-service agency that receives neither federal nor state tax dollars to finance its projects or operations. Funding for the operations, maintenance and upkeep of its bridges and related transportation facilities is solely derived from revenues collected at its toll bridges. The Commission's jurisdiction extends along the Delaware River from the Philadelphia-Bucks County line north to the New Jersey/New York border. The bridges carried more than 144.5 million cars and trucks in 2016.
