Traffic Shift Map for Rescheduled NJ Route 29 SB Bypass Closure

The closure of the NJ Route 29 SB bypass lane at the I-295/Route 29 interchange (Exit 76) has been postponed.  It is rescheduled to shut down for a one-week trial traffic diversion plan starting noon, Friday, Feb. 28.

If the trial period proves successful, the lane closure and traffic diversion through the interchange's adjoining ramps and roundabouts will be extended to remain in place for 18 months.  This will allow for Stage 2 construction activities for the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.

Towpath closures are not anticipated to occur on weekends.
