LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today reminded motorists that the exit ramp from I-95 southbound to Taylorsville Road northbound (Exit 51B – New Hope) will be closed for four hours during the overnight period late Thursday into early Friday.
A posted detour will be in effect during the period that the exit ramp (first exit in Pennsylvania after crossing the Scudder Falls Bridge from New Jersey) is closed. The detour will direct motorists to the next interchange (Exit 49) to make a U-turn and follow I-95 northbound back to the Taylorsville Road interchange where they can exit and make a left turn onto Taylorsville Road northbound.
The closure of the southbound I-95 exit ramp for Taylorsville Road northbound is scheduled to begin 10 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, and end 2 a.m. Friday, Nov. 17.
The ramp closure is needed to allow for installation of construction safety barriers along the exit lane as part of the ongoing Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.
The scheduled ramp closure is subject to change due to weather, emergency, traffic, and 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.
