The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s 1799 House trailhead facility near the PA Delaware Canal and the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge remains closed due to a water service live disruption.

Repairs to the water service line are expected to be made starting Saturday, October 17, in the vicinity of the nearby Taylorsville Road/Woodside Road intersection.

The 1799 House is expected to reopen for public use on or about Tuesday, October 20.

When in operation, the 1799 House may be accessed from dawn to dusk.  It has men’s and women’s lavatories, ADA-compliant access ramps, and an open lobby.  A bicycle rack and benches are outside the building.  Access is interrupted from time to time each day to allow for stepped up cleaning efforts due to the coronavirus pandemic.

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.
