Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission Schedules Open House Meetings For The I-95/Scudder Falls Bridge Improvement Project
MORRISVILLE, PA – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission is sponsoring two public open house meetings to update citizens on the progress of the I-95/Scudder Falls Bridge Improvement Project. The goal of the improvement project is to relieve congestion and improve safety on the Scudder Falls Bridge and adjacent sections of I-95 in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
An open house meeting will be held in New Jersey on Tuesday, May 10 from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at the Villa Victoria Academy Gymnasium at 376 West Upper Ferry Road in Ewing Township. In Pennsylvania, a meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 11 from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Pennwood Middle School located at 1523 Makefield Road in Yardley. A presentation about the design options being considered for the Scudder Falls Bridge, I-95 and the interchanges in the project area will be provided at 7:00 p.m.
Both open house meetings will display the various design options and the potential impacts of the options to local areas for public review and comment. The meetings will also include maps and demonstrations with information about current and future traffic conditions and environmental features in the project area.
“We strongly encourage people to attend these meetings and learn more about the design options that we are advancing,” said Frank G. McCartney, Executive Director of the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission. “Now that the Commission has developed specific options for the bridge, I-95 and the local interchanges, we are interested in hearing from residents about which designs they prefer.”
