NJ Route 175/Upper River Road in the vicinity of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge is scheduled to be closed to through-traffic for a second week — 8 a.m. to 6 a.m. (next day) Monday, July 27, to Friday, July 31.   The extended closure is for work associated with the construction of an I-295 approach bridge across that roadway, the Delaware & Raritan Canal and the Rte. 29 northbound bypass roadway.  Motorists are advised to use nearby Route 29 as an alternate route during the closure period.  Local access to homes and businesses will be maintained when the road is closed to through traffic.

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.
