Traffic Shift Map for NJ Route 29 SB Bypass Closure

The NJ Route 29 SB bypass lane at the I-295/Route 29 interchange (Exit 76) is closed with traffic shifted through the two roundabouts and connector lanes toward Trenton.

This uninterrupted closure allowed for erection of a second bridge span and I-295 approach widening in 2020 and 2021.  It also is allowing for the completion of the shared-use pedestrian-bicycle facility (walkway, ramps, and paths) on the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge's upstream span.  

This continuous closure will continue into the fall of 2021.

Detour for the NJ Rte. 175/River Road On-Ramp to I-295 SB (Pink Map)

Revised August 2021:  This ramp is expected to remain closed into fall 2021.  Use the southern roundabout at the nearby I-295/Route 29 interchange to access the on-ramp to I-295 SB.

Possible Stoppages/Closures on Delaware Canal Towpath Segment near Bridge in September

Intermittent closures/stoppages are possible on the Delaware Canal towpath segment near the Pennsylvania side of the Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge.

Possible Closures/Stoppages on NJ D&R Canal Towpath Section near Scudder Falls Bridge through September 2021

Stoppages of pedestrians and bicyclists are possible 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays along the Delaware & Raritan Canal towpath on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge now through September 2021.

Stoppages -- when needed -- would allow for various construction activities related to the installation of connector path and ramp to the shared-use pedestrian/bicycle facility on the Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge's upstream span.

Towpath closures are not anticipated to occur on weekends.
