LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – The previously announced daytime closures/detours of Woodside Road between River Road/PA Route 32 and the Delaware Canal have been rescheduled to start Wednesday, July 8, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
The shutdown of the short road segment had originally been scheduled to start tomorrow, July 7.
The road closure – when in effect — will allow work crews to establish a planned wetlands-mitigation area as part of the ongoing Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project. Construction activities on an entry-exit apron for the Pennsylvania access ramp to the new bridge’s shared-use walkway could also take place during the road closure periods.
The impending travel restriction is now rescheduled to be implemented as follows:
- Woodside Road between the Delaware Canal and River Road/PA Route 32 – closed and detoured 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 8, to Friday, July 10. (CLICK HERE TO VIEW DETOUR MAP)
Affected motorists are advised to use posted detours at Mt. Eyre Road to the north and East Afton Ave./PA Route 332 as connection points between River Road/Route 32 and Taylorsville Road whenever the road closure is in effect.
The aforementioned scheduled travel restriction is subject to change due to weather, emergency, traffic, and equipment/materials 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.
