The duration of the current around-the-clock closure of the NJ Route 29 NB bypass roadway around the I-295/Route 29 interchange (Exit 76, on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge) has been extended an additional week and is now expected to end approximately noon Wednesday, Feb. 26.

Affected motorists are advised to continue using the diversion route through portions of the interchange’s new system of ramps and roundabouts for reconnection with Route 29 NB for travel toward Washington Crossing and other points north.  (CLICK HERE TO VIEW DETOUR MAP)

Shortly after the Route 29 NB bypass lane reopens to traffic, the nearby Route 29 SB bypass lane will be shut down with the affected traffic shifted to the interchange’s adjacent ramps and roundabouts for travel toward Trenton.

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.
