MORRISVILLE, PA – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today announced traffic restrictions at the Scudder Falls (I-95) toll-supported bridge beginning on or about June 1, 2004. Single-lane traffic restrictions will be in effect periodically on the bridge while construction occurs.
Weather permitting, these lane restrictions are scheduled to begin on June 1 and are expected to conclude by July 30. Lane restrictions will be restricted to weeknights and weekends to minimize traffic disruptions. Weeknight lane restrictions will be in effect between the hours of 9:30 pm and 6:00 am. Weekend lane restrictions will be in effect starting at 9:30 pm on Friday and extending until 6:00 am on Monday. No work will be done during the July 4 holiday weekend.
The work to be completed involves the installation of stringer-support brackets; the replacement of diaphragm members, high-strength steel bolts and rivets at various locations; and the cleaning and painting of all structural steel within three feet of the stress-relief joints. The $771,200 construction project is being performed by J.D. Eckman, Inc. from Atglen, PA.
