LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – The planned daytime closure and detour of the Woodside Road segment between PA Route 32/River Road and Taylorsville Road has been rescheduled to begin on or about Monday, March 29, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.

The closure/detour was originally announced to begin this week.

When the rescheduled travel restriction does begin, it is expected to be in effect 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays for up to four weeks.  The travel restriction is currently projected to end in mid-April.

Detours for travel between PA Route 32/River Road and Taylorsville Road would be at PA Route 332/East Afton Avenue to the south and Mount Eyre Road to the north.

The near-daily road closures will allow Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project work crews to establish a wetlands mitigation area on the property at southwest corner of Woodside and River roads.  The parcel had been used as a construction staging area for the bridge project over the past four years.

The Commission intends to maintain the wetlands site in perpetuity once the conversion work is completed.
