The Commission’s 1799 House trailhead is scheduled to reopen for public use early Saturday, June 6.

The facility, which has public bathrooms, is adjacent to the Delaware Canal near the Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge’s Pennsylvania abutment.  It is accessible from the Commission-owned park-and-ride lot at the corner of Taylorsville and Woodside roads in Lower Makefield, PA.  Once reopened, the building will be accessible dawn to dusk seven days a week except when cleaning work is taking place.

The building, which the Commission owns and maintains, was closed temporarily in the interest of public health and safety due to fast-spreading coronavirus infections in mid-March.

 

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 eight toll bridges and 12 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans.  (Note:  The first completed span of the new Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge opened to traffic during overnight hours on July 9, 2019.) 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 139.2 million cars and trucks in 2018.
