The NJ Route 29 northbound bypass roadway around the I-295/Route 29 interchange is scheduled to be closed a second week — 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. (next day) Monday, July 27, through Friday, July 31.

Affected motorists are advised to follow posted detour signs for travel through the interchange’s roundabouts to reconnect with Route 29 northbound for travel toward Washington Crossing and Lambertville.

The closure is needed to allow for the installation of girders for a new I-295 approach bridge to the nearby Scudder Falls Toll Bridge.  When fully completed, the new approach bridge will carry I-295 SB traffic across NJ Route 175/Upper River Road, the Delaware & Raritan Canal, and the NJ Route 29 northbound bypass lanes.

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.
