LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destinations if they plan to use I-95 in the vicinity of the Scudder Falls Bridge for the following directions and times on Monday, Feb. 5:

  • I-95 southbound – 6 a.m. to 11 a.m.
  • I-95 northbound –10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The respective travel directions will be reduced to a single lane to allow for pothole repair and milling/paving work at the approach bridge that carries I-95 across Taylorsville Road (Exit 51) in Lower Makefield, PA.

There is an increased likelihood of congestion and delays during these periods due to movements of construction equipment and rubbernecking by passing drivers.

The road work, which was postponed from Thursday, Feb. 1, will be concentrated in the area of the approach bridge that carries I-95 across Taylorsville Road (exit 51) in Lower Makefield, PA.

No detours will be necessary and the on and off ramps at Exit 51 will remain open while emergency paving takes place.

The aforementioned scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, traffic, and equipment/materials mobilization considerations.  Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations, and to reduce speeds and exercise caution when travelling through project work areas.

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.
