All roadway lanes along I-95 and in the vicinity of the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project work area will be open for the upcoming Fourth of July travel period, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission said today.

Project-related travel restrictions are suspended in anticipation of heavier than normal holiday traffic. AAA is predicting this weekend to be the “most traveled Independence Day holiday” ever.

AAA predicts that 44.2 million Americans are expected to travel 50 miles or more from home, with the vast majority on the road. That’s an increase of nearly 3 percent from the year before, or more than a million people.

The final roadway restriction in the project area – a single-lane traffic pattern along I-95 south in the vicinity of the Scudder Falls Bridge – will be in effect 8 p.m. this evening (June 29) to 6 a.m. tomorrow (June 30).

After that, project-related travel restrictions are not scheduled to resume until after the morning job commuting period ends on Wednesday, July 5. A separate advisory on post Fourth of July travel restrictions will be issued by the Commission tomorrow.

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.
