Delaware Water Gap (I-80) Toll Bridge New Jersey-bound -- I-80 eastbound motorists approaching the bridge from Monroe County, PA. could experience backups and delays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24, and Thursday, May 25.
The bridge's New Jersey-bound direction is scheduled to be reduced to a single lane on those dates for paving and milling work between drainage inlets.
The Commission’s 1799 House trailhead is scheduled to reopen for public use early Saturday, June 6.
The facility, which has public bathrooms, is adjacent to the Delaware Canal near the Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge’s Pennsylvania abutment. It is accessible from the Commission-owned park-and-ride lot at the corner of Taylorsville and Woodside roads in Lower Makefield, PA. Once reopened, the building will be accessible dawn to dusk seven days a week except when cleaning work is taking place.
The building, which the Commission owns and maintains, was closed temporarily in the interest of public health and safety due to fast-spreading coronavirus infections in mid-March.
