EWING, NJ – The I-95 northbound on-ramp from River Road/NJ Route 175 is scheduled to be closured during overnight hours Monday through Friday next week to allow for Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project construction activities. In addition, overnight closures and detours will be implemented this weekend and potentially Monday at the I-95/Route 29 interchange (Exit 1) and along Route 29 Southbound in the vicinity of the bridge.

A previously imposed set of detour routes will again be implemented to direct affected motorists onto I-95 north (soon-to-be-designated I-295 south). A map of the prescribed detour routes is attached.

The River Road/NJ Route 175 ramp travel restriction is scheduled to be in place 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. (next day) on Monday, March 5 through Friday, March 9. This restriction and detours may be delayed until Tuesday, March 6 if weather conditions this weekend require extending the timeframe for project work on Route 29 and the Interchange Ramps.
