The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission says I-295 SB (old I-95 NB) is scheduled to be shifted into a new travel pattern on the New Jersey side of the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge Monday, November 25.
The traffic realignment will begin after the Monday morning peak commuting period ends at 10:00 a.m., the time when non-emergency single-lane travel patterns can be implemented in the New Jersey-bound direction on the bridge. The work is expected to take much of the day – and even extend into the evening – before it can be completed.
One potential impact is periodic traffic stoppages along the entry ramp that allows NJ Route 29 NB and SB motorists to access I-295 SB. Traffic stoppages on the entry ramp could last several minutes if and when needed to move equipment or to extend the ramp out to the new roadway alignment.
Later in the week, a moratorium on project-related lane closures will go into effect on the bridge, the I-295 approaches and the ramps and adjoining roadways in the 4.4 mile project area. Under contract, project related lane closures will be suspended from 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 27, to noon Monday, December 2.
