LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA. – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today announced that it has scheduled an April 27 meeting to announce the results of a recent noise data collection effort along I-95 in Lower Makefield Township, PA.
The new noise readings will supplement earlier data collected during the environmental documentation process for the upcoming Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project. A key objective of this supplemental research was to determine if more Noise Sensitive Areas
(NSAs) along Pennsylvania’s I-95 approach to the Scudder Falls Bridge might meet the eligibility thresholds for installations of noise-abatement walls.
The meeting is scheduled to begin 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, at the William Penn Middle School, 1524 Derbyshire Road, Yardley, PA.
The meeting’s primary audience will be residents in neighborhoods along I-95 that were previously determined to be ineligible for noise abatement walls as part of the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project. The Commission has mailed invitation letters to the affected residents in the neighborhoods where additional noise testing was conducted.
About the Commission
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was formed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey in 1934. It operates seven toll bridges and 13 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans. The Commission is a self-supporting public-service agency that receives neither federal nor state tax dollars to finance its projects or operations. Funding for the operations, maintenance and upkeep of its bridges and related transportation facilities is solely derived from revenues collected at its toll bridges. The Commission’s jurisdiction extends along the Delaware River from the Philadelphia-Bucks County line north to the New Jersey/New York border. The bridges carried more than 141.7 million cars and trucks in 2015.
