EWING, NJ – A short section of the Delaware and Raritan Canal towpath on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Bridge is scheduled to close during daytime hours for up to seven days starting Wednesday, Aug. 22, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
The scheduled daily towpath closures are needed to ensure public safety while a new phase of construction related to the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project takes place in the vicinity of the I-295/Route 29 interchange (Exit 76, old Exit 1).
Towpath access will be blocked 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (except Sunday) from Wednesday, Aug. 22, to Wednesday, Aug. 29. (Note: Depending on construction progress and weather, the towpath closure for Saturday, Aug. 25, may be cancelled.)
The aforementioned restrictions are subject to change.
Pedestrians and bicyclists are urged to exercise caution when traveling along the canal near or through work areas for the duration of the 4-1/2-year-long bridge replacement project.
