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 closure will allow for Stage 2 construction activities -- erection of a second bridge span and I-295 approach widening -- in 2020 and 2021.


PA Route 32/River Road Daytime Closure/Detour Tuesday, Oct. 13

Due to recent rain, an all-day closure and detour of PA Route 32/River Road in the vicinity of the Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge has been rescheduled for 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13.

The travel restriction is needed to allow for overhead work activities associated with the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.

Motorists are urged to use nearby Taylorsville Road as a detour route around the roadway closure.  Detour points will be at South Delaware Avenue/PA Route 332-East Afton Avenue in Yardley and River Road/Woodside Road in Lower Makefield.

NJ D&R Canal Towpath Section near Scudder Falls Bridge open through September 2020

Limited intermittent weekday closures of the Delaware & Raritan Canal towpath on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge may occur 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays now through September.

Closures -- when needed -- would allow for various construction and demolition activities in the vicinity of the old Scudder Falls Bridge and at the I-295 approach bridge that crosses over NJ Route 29 NB, NJ Route 175/River Road, and the canal.

Towpath closures are not anticipated to occur on weekends.
