EWING, NJ – Route 29 northbound motorists will encounter a 17-hour ramp closure and detour in order to access I-95 northbound late Friday night through Saturday afternoon, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.

The Route 29 northbound on-ramp to I-95 northbound is scheduled to be closed from 11 p.m. Friday, October 27, to 4 p.m. Saturday, October 28.  The ramp is part of the sprawling interchange of the two highways (Exit 1) on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls (I-95) Bridge.

During the closure period, signs will be posted – in advance of the interchange – to direct potentially affected Route 29 motorists to I-95 north via a detour route involving a right turn onto West Upper Ferry Road followed by a left turn onto Route 175/River Road.  (A schematic map of the posted detour route is below.)

The ramp closure and detour is needed to allow for realignment of temporary I-95/Route 29 interchange ramps as part of the ongoing Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.

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.

More information and videos on the bridge replacement project are available at www.scudderfallsbridge.com.

 

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.
