Girder installations associated with the erection of new bridge across the Delaware & Raritan Canal, NJ Route 175, and the NJ Route 29 northbound bypass roadway will necessitate daytime and weeknight closures of the canal’s recreational towpath Monday through Thursday until the end of July.  (Friday closures also could be implemented in the event of rained-out work dates.)

The work is part of the ongoing Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.

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.
