UPDATE - Occasional Weekday Closures of PA Delaware Canal Towpath until June

A portion of the Delaware Canal towpath in the vicinity of I-295 (old I-95) on the Pennsylvania side of the Scudder Falls Bridge is expected to have occasional short-notice weekday closures until June 2019.  The closures are needed to ensure public safety as work crews construct a new, widened approach bridge to carry I-295 across the canal.  Barring any schedule changes, the towpath is expected to be open to public use on weekends.


UPDATE: Intermittent Closures of NJ D&R Canal Towpath Section near Scudder Falls Bridge to Continue through MAY

Revised on April 26: Intermittent daytime and nightime closures of the Delaware & Raritan Canal towpath on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Bridge are now scheduled to continue through May 2019.  The closures are needed to ensure public safety while demolition and construction activities take place relative to widening of the I-295 approach bridge that crosses over NJ Route 29 NB, NJ Route 175/River Road, and the canal.  Towpath closures may occur on some weekends, although Sunday closures are very unlikely.
