EWING, NJ – A series of travel restrictions that were scheduled to be in effect through upcoming weekend along Route 175/River Road in Ewing, N.J. have been cancelled, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
The roadway segment in the vicinity of the Scudder Falls Bridge and the adjoining I-95/Route 29 interchange (Exit 1) has been subject to daytime alternating single-lane travel patterns and full overnight closures – with posted detours — since early Wednesday, June 21. The restrictions were imposed to allow for utility relocation work as part of the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.
The work that had been scheduled for this weekend will be suspended around midnight tonight. As a result, both Route 175/River Road and the roadway’s on-ramp to I-95 north will remain open through Saturday and Sunday.
Travel restrictions currently are expected to resume 6 a.m. on Monday, June 26, and continue through Thursday, June 29, as follows:
- Single travel lane in alternating directions with traffic controlled by flaggers 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
- Overnight closures of the roadway – from the entrance to Trooper Drive to the point where Route 175/River Road splits north of the I-95 overpass – 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly.
During overnight closure periods, a posted detour will direct drivers seeking to access the roadway’s on-ramp to I-95 north.
Note: The utility relocation work is to be placed on hiatus again for the Fourth of July holiday travel period. Travel restriction are expected to resume July 5 and continue through July 20.
The scheduled restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, and traffic considerations. Motorists are urged to reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through active work zones.
