LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – Two ramps at the I-295/Taylorsville Road interchange (Exit 10) on the Pennsylvania side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge have reopened, ending a three-week closure/detour that has been in place since June 1.

The two ramps returned to service a day ahead of schedule, according to the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.

They were closed June 1 to allow construction crews to install drainage pipes and connections beneath or in close proximity to the ramps, both of which border a newly constructed storm-water basin.  The excavated areas have been back-filled and temporarily repaved. The ramps will be fully realigned/repaved later in the project, when they will be tied into a new approach roadway that will carry New Jersey-bound traffic to the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge’s second span currently under construction at the river.

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.
