LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – A two-day work detail to address potholes and deteriorated pavement along I-95 on the Pennsylvania side of the Scudder Falls Bridge could cause travel delays on Wednesday, Jan. 31, and Thursday, Feb. 1.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time to reach their destinations if they plan to use the Scudder Falls Bridge during the respective directions and times:

  • I-95 southbound – Wednesday, Jan. 31, 6 a.m. to 11 a.m.; AND Thursday, Feb. 1, 6 a.m. to 11 a.m.
  • I-95 northbound – Wednesday, Jan. 31, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; AND Thursday, Feb. 1, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

There is an increased likelihood of congestion and delays during these periods due to movements of construction equipment and rubbernecking by passing drivers.

The road work will be concentrated in the area of the approach bridge that carries I-95 across Taylorsville Road (exit 51) in Lower Makefield, PA.

I-95 will be reduced to single lanes in each direction while milling and paving operations take place. Lane closures will be within the bridge project’s recent prevailing assigned restricted travel periods.  This means two travels lanes are to be provided in each respective direction during peak commuting periods – 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. southbound and 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. northbound.

No detours will be necessary and the on and off ramps at Exit 51 will remain open while emergency paving takes place.

The aforementioned scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, traffic, and equipment/materials mobilization considerations.  Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, and to reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.
