LOWER MAKEFIELD, PA – Westbound travel will be prohibited on Woodside Road from Taylorsville Road to just beyond Clearview Drive in Lower Makefield Township, PA. for a little more than a month starting Monday, April 2, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced today.

The travel restriction is needed to allow for execution of a stepped-up series of construction activities that will widen and improve Woodside Road immediately west of its intersection with Taylorsville Road.  This work is a small facet of the 4-1/2-year-long Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project and will involve drainage, extension of a water line, installation of curbing, and milling and paving.

The westbound Woodside Road travel restriction will affect residents and job commuters from Lower Makefield, Upper Makefield, Newtown and points west.  It also will affect golfers who use the thoroughfare to access the Makefield Highlands Golf Club from the I-95/Taylorsville Road interchange (Exit 51).

Travel Impacts – Woodside Road westbound

  • From April 2 through May 1 – Two detours will be posted at the Woodside Road/Taylorsville Road intersection, directing westbound Woodside Road traffic to use either Mt. Eyre Road to the north or Dolington Road to the south.
  • Detour map can be found by clicking here.

The aforementioned scheduled travel restriction is 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.
