LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – A series of overnight ramps closures and detours are scheduled to be implemented next week at the I-295/Taylorsville Road interchange (Exit 10) on the Pennsylvania side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.
The travel restrictions will allow for final paving of the interchange’s five entry and exit ramps that were reconstructed or realigned in 2019 or 2021 as part of the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project. Efforts will be made to sequence the ramp closures in a manner to avoid multiple ramp closures at the same time when possible. The final paving on I-295 will be scheduled later in October and November.
The upcoming ramp-paving work and corresponding closures and detours at the interchanged are scheduled for 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. (next day) on Monday, Sept. 27, through Friday, October 1.
Affected motorists are advised to follow the posted detour routes when a respective ramp closure is in effect. All detours will involve travel via the nearby I-295/PA Route 332 (Exit 8 for Yardley-Newtown Road).
The above-mentioned travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergencies, traffic, and equipment/materials availability. Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.
