Traffic has now been shifted to the outside of the roadway (right lane and shoulder) along both directions of I-95 between the Route 332/Newtown-Yardley interchange (Exit 49) and the Scudder Falls Bridge. The traffic shift will now allow for earth moving, drainage installations and eventual roadway widening in the highway median – one of the major elements of the multi-faceted Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.
With the traffic shifts established, motorists should anticipate that there will be intermittent off-peak single-lane travel patterns in both the northbound and southbound directions on a regular basis as project construction progresses over the next four years.
Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations when traveling I-95 through the project area regardless of the time of day due to lane closures, traffic shifts, narrowed travel lanes with adjacent concrete construction barriers, and movements of construction equipment. Backups and delays are possible at any time. Motorists should reduce speeds and exercise caution whenever traveling through the various active work zones.
The full schedule of project-area travel restrictions for the week of August 6 are as follows:
- I-95 north – Intermittent single-lane travel from the Route 332/Newtown-Yardley interchange (Exit 49) to the Scudder Falls Bridge 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. (following day) Monday, Aug. 7 through Friday, Aug. 11.
- I-95 south – Intermittent single-lane travel from the Scudder Falls Bridge to the Route 332/Newtown-Yardley interchange (Exit 49), 8 p.m. to 2 p.m. (following day) Monday, Aug. 7, through Friday, August 11.
