The previously announced closure of the NJ Route 29 northbound bypass of the I-295/Route 29 interchange (Exit 76) on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge has been rescheduled to start TUESDAY, January 21.

During the roadway closure, affected traffic will be diverted through portions of the interchange’s new system of ramps and roundabouts for reconnection with Route 29 NB for travel toward Washington Crossing and Lambertville.  (CLICK HERE TO VIEW DETOUR MAP)

The Route 29 NB travel restriction is currently scheduled to last one week, but will be extended an additional three weeks – until the week of February 16 – if traffic impacts do not exceed projections.  Under the closure and diversion plan, motorists should expect to encounter delays and backups only during weekday evening-peak travel periods – 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.

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.
