LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – Emergency pavement repairs conducted today will allow for two-lane travel along I-95 southbound in Lower Makefield, PA. during this evening’s peak commuter travel period, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.

Only single-lane travel has been allowed along I-95 southbound between Dolington and Quarry Roads about a mile south of the Scudder Falls Bridge since 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 12. The right lane of the roadway segment was closed for safety reasons after recent freeze-thaw conditions comprised several sections of pavement.

The affected portion of I-95 southbound will return to its previously announced weekly travel schedule until further notice:

• Two-lane travel 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday for purposes of handling peak evening traffic volumes; and
• Single-lane travel 8 p.m. to 2 p.m. (next day) Monday through Friday to allow for construction activities associated with the ongoing Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.

Motorists are advised to reduce speeds, exercise caution and allow extra time to reach their destinations regardless of when they travel I-95 through the project area.

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.
