The scope of project-related travel restrictions will abate slightly next week as construction crews move closer to completing the long-term traffic patterns that are expected to be fully implemented later this month along the Pennsylvania I-95 segment between the current bridge and the Rte. 332/Newtown/Yardley interchange (Exit 49).

The following travel restrictions are scheduled for the 4.4-mile-long project area during the week of July 9:

Pennsylvania side

  • I-95 south PA – Single-lane pattern from the Scudder Falls Bridge to the Rte. 332/Newtown-Yardley interchange (Exit 49), 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, July 10; AND 8 p.m. to 2 p.m. (following day) Monday, July 10, through Saturday, July 15.

(Note:  Uninterrupted southbound traffic shift was scheduled to take effect overnight Friday, July 7; if not implemented, southbound traffic shift would be rescheduled for Tuesday, July 11.)

  • I-95 north PA — Single-lane travel pattern from the Rte. 332/Newtown-Yardley interchange (Exit 49) to the Scudder Falls Bridge 10 a.m. to 5 a.m. (following day) Monday, July 10, through Saturday, July 15.
  • River Road/Route 32, Lower Makefield, PA upstream of the Scudder Falls Bridge – brief-duration alternating single-lane travel patterns with flaggers 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, July 10, to Saturday, July 15.

New Jersey side

  • Route 175/River Road – alternating single-lane traffic pattern controlled by flaggers daytime and early evenings 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and full closures in vicinity of I-95 overpass 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. (following day) Monday, July 10, through Saturday, July 15.    Note: On-ramp to I-95 will be inaccessible during the overnight closure periods; affected motorists should follow posted detour routes.

The scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, traffic, and project mobilization considerations

Motorists are urged to reduce speeds and exercise caution when traveling through active work zones.

Due to changing travel patterns, narrower lane configurations and possible traffic queuing at some locations, motorists are encouraged to allow extra time to reach their destinations when traveling I-95 through the project work zone.

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. For more information about the Commission and its various initiatives to deliver safer and more convenient bridge travel for its customers, please see: www.drjtbc.org.
