LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – A short section of the Delaware Canal towpath on the Pennsylvania side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge is scheduled to be closed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday of next week, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
The towpath use restriction is needed to ensure public safety while modifications are made to an elevated utility supply line on the underside of the bridge that carries I-295 across the canal near the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge. (MAP OF THE CLOSED SECTION CAN BE FOUND HERE)
The work beneath the bridge over the canal is one small facet of the continuing Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project, which is expected to reach substantial completion late next year. Weather permitting, the utility line work is anticipated to be completed by Dec. 18.
