Overnight Closures of NJ-Route 29 Bypass July 27-31

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.

Frequency-Based 40% Commuter Discount Available at New Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge

Did you know the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission's 40-percent E-ZPass commuter discount program extends to the new Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge?  Did you know that the frequency-based discount can effectively reduce the bridge's base Class 1 vehicle E-ZPass toll from $1.25 to 75 cents?

To be eligible, a motorist needs an E-ZPass transponder/account issued/administered by the Commission's toll processor -- the regional New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center.

The discount can then be applied as a retroactive credit on a future E-ZPass statement after 16 or more tolled trips are made across the bridge or any other Commission toll bridge during a respective calendar month.

The discount is tag specific, meaning the customer's transponder must be in the vehicle and in working order when a toll transaction is recorded.  Class 1 passenger vehicles only -- cars, pickup trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, and other vehicles that have two axles and are less than eight-feet high.

To apply online for an E-ZPass account with the Commission's toll processor, please go to www.ezpassnj.com.  Or  dial 1-888-AUTO-TOLL (1-888-288-6865) during business hours Monday through Friday.
