Woodside Road between Park-n-Ride and River Road to Close during Daytime Hours October 20

A short segment of Woodside Road in Lower Makefield Towship, PA. -- from Route 32/River Road to the Park-n-Ride lot near Taylrosvilel Road -- will be closed and detoured  7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wedneday, Oct. 20.

Detours will be via Mt. Eyre Road to the north and East Afton Avenue/PA Route 332 to the south.

The road closure will allow for the hoisting and installation of a pre-fabricated pedestrian bridge over the Delaware Canal.


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 long-duration closure is now scheduled to be lifted on or about Oct. 4, 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.

Delaware Canal Towpath Segment near Bridge Closed Around-the-Clock until on or about October 31

Expect the Delaware Canal towpath segment near the Pennsylvania side of the Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge to be closed around-the-clock -- including weekends -- for construction of a pedestrian bridge over the canal in the area of the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission's 1799 House trailhead.

The work is being executed in tandem with completion of the shared-use pedestrian-bicycle facility on the Scudder Falls Bridge's upstream span.

The towpath closure is currently scheduled to remain in place until on or about October 31.

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.
