1799 House Trailhead Facility's Reopening Date Changed to 'Uncertain'

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s 1799 House trailhead facility near the PA Delaware Canal and the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge remains closed due to a water service line disruption.

Repairs to the water service line in the vicinity of the nearby Taylorsville Road/Woodside Road intersection began Oct. 17, but the severity of corrosion to the underground water connections will require additional materials and work.

As a result, a completion date cannot be determined at this time.  A status update is expected by the weekend of Oct. 24-25.

When in operation, the 1799 House may be accessed from dawn to dusk.  It has men’s and women’s lavatories, ADA-compliant access ramps, and an open lobby.  A bicycle rack and benches are outside the building.  Access is interrupted from time to time each day to allow for stepped up cleaning efforts due to the coronavirus pandemic.
