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, June 22 from 7:00 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, June 23 from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at the Lower Makefield Township Building located at 1100 Edgewood Drive in Yardley.
Both open house meetings will include maps, displays and demonstrations with information about current and future traffic conditions and environmental features in the project area. Draft improvement concepts for the Scudder Falls Bridge and I-95 also will be displayed for public review and comment.
“We strongly encourage people to attend these meetings to see the information we’ve collected so far,” said Commission Executive Director Frank G. McCartney. “Since we are just beginning to develop concepts to improve congestion and safety, we’re interested in feedback from residents about our ideas.”
