Weather permitting, construction crews for the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project are poised to establish a new travel pattern TONIGHT along the Pennsylvania I-95 southbound segment between the current bridge and the Rte. 332/Newtown/Yardley interchange (Exit 49).

The lane shift will be to the outside of the roadway, where the shoulders were strengthened in recent weeks to carry highway-speed traffic on a regular basis. Once in effect, the resulting travel lanes will be slightly narrower with concrete barriers along the entire left lane and at warranted locations on the right.

The new travel configuration will remain in effect on a 24/7 basis for an extended period, allowing for work in the highway median that will widen the roadway from two travel lanes to three travel lanes. A similar traffic shift in the northbound direction is expected to be put in place at a yet-to-be determined date later in July.

Lane transitioning activities in the southbound direction currently are scheduled to begin after 8 p.m. tonight and are expected to be completed around 6 a.m. tomorrow.

(Note: If the traffic pattern shift does not occur tonight, the work will be rescheduled for overnight hours on Tuesday, July 11.)

The above-mentioned travel advisory is subject to change due to weather, emergency, traffic, and project-mobilization considerations
Motorists are urged to reduce speeds and exercise caution whenever 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 4.4-mile-long Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement 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.
