LOWER MAKEFIELD, NJ – A moratorium on construction-related travel restrictions for the Scudder Falls (I-295) Bridge Replacement Project is scheduled to begin 6 a.m. Friday, Aug. 31, and remain in place until noon Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Barring an accident or some other emergency, I-295 (old I-95) will be open with two lanes in each direction through the 4.4-mile project area for the duration of the Labor Day holiday weekend.

The suspension of project-related travel restrictions comes in anticipation of heavier than normal traffic volumes for the upcoming weekend.

Canal towpaths: The towpaths for the Delaware & Raritan Canal in New Jersey and the Delaware Canal in Pennsylvania will be open to the public Saturday, Sunday, and Labor Day.

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 eight toll bridges and 12 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans.  (Note:  The first completed span of the new Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge opened to traffic during overnight hours on July 9, 2019.) 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 139.2 million cars and trucks in 2018.
