I-295 WB Returned to Two-Lanes -- The around-the-clock single-lane travel restriction on I-295 WB from the PA Rest Area to the Yardley-Newtown Road/PA Route 332 Interchange (Exit 8) has been lifted. Only intermittent off-peak single-lane closures are possible moving forward.
Water service has been restored to the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s 1799 House trailhead facility near the PA Delaware Canal and the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge. The facility is expected to reopen for public use at dawn on Thursday, Oct. 29.
The facility had been closed through much of October due to a corroded underground water line connections in the vicinity of the nearby Taylorsville Road/Woodside Road intersection.
Repairs were extensive and were completed today, Oct. 28.
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.
Despite a recent resurgence of coronavirus cases being reported in New Jersey and Pennsylvania this fall, the Commission continues to accept cash at its attended toll booths. Toll collectors are required to wear gloves and some sort of face covering. To mitigate the spread of the coronavirus and to enhance the well-being of its customers and employees, the Commission requests motorists to don a mask when making cash toll transactions or conversing with an attendant at a bridge toll booth.
The NJ Route 29 SB bypass lane beneath the Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge is closed with affected traffic diverted through the I-295/Route 29 interchange's adjacent roundabouts and southbound service. This pattern is expected to remain in effect until late August 2021.
