LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – Poor pavement conditions brought on by the recent freeze-thaw weather trend are forcing an emergency lane closure along I-95 southbound in Lower Makefield, PA immediately following the Friday evening commuting period, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.

The right lane of I-95 southbound will be shutdown 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 12, and will remain closed until repairs can be made. The affected I-95 segment is between Dolington and Quarry Roads about a mile south of the Scudder Falls Bridge.

The single-lane travel pattern could remain in place along the roadway through the upcoming weekend.

Motorists using I-95 southbound in Pennsylvania south of the Scudder Falls Bridge are advised to reduced speeds, exercise caution and allow extra time to reach their destinations while the emergency lane closure is in effect.

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.
