Beginning approximately 4 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 18, a portion of the I-295/NJ Route 29 interchange (Exit 76) on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Bridge will be closed to traffic for 18 consecutive weeks.
Three traffic movements at the interchange will be affected and each will have its own respective detour route:
- I-295 EB/SB exit ramp to Route 29 NB (first exit in NJ after crossing Scudder Falls Bridge into New Jersey) – (CLICK HERE TO SEE ORANGE DETOUR MAP)
- Route 29 SB&NB entry ramps to I-295 NB/WB and the Scudder Falls Bridge (Pennsylvania bound) – (CLICK HERE TO SEE BLUE DETOUR MAP)
- I-295 NB exit ramp to Route 29 SB (last exit in NJ) — (CLICK HERE TO SEE GREEN DETOUR MAP)
Important note: Only select travel movements within the interchange are affected; the Scudder Falls Bridge, I-295 and Route 29 will remain open to thru-traffic.
Because of the scope of ramp closures and detours at the interchange, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission is warning motorists who use the I-295/Route 29 interchange during peak commuting periods to allow extra time to reach their destinations on Monday, Feb. 18, and Tuesday, Feb. 19, as the public adjusts to the new travel restrictions.
