Travel Advisory for week of August 22 - Newly Established Stage 3 Travel Pattern Allows Work in Median Area of Bridge and I-295 Approaches
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.

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.
