Intermittent weekday closures of the Delaware & Raritan Canal towpath on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge are possible 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays through May 2021.

Closures -- when needed -- would allow for various construction activities in the vicinity of the old Scudder Falls Bridge related to the installation of connector path and ramp to the shared-use bike-ped facility on the upstream span of the new Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge.

Towpath closures are not anticipated to occur on weekends.
