The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission announced that construction crews are scheduled to begin installing the concrete road deck atop the Scudder Falls Toll Bridge’s upstream span the week of March 11.
Temperatures are forecast to warm to levels allowing for pouring, finishing, and curing of concrete along the 1,815-foot first span of the new bridge, which remains on track to open to traffic on a yet-to-be-determined date this summer.
The first pour of concrete is expected to begin 2:00 a.m. Tuesday, March 12, and end during the early afternoon that day. This will necessitate a right-lane closure in the Pennsylvania-bound direction on the current Scudder Falls Bridge. This will result in a single-lane travel pattern on I-295 NB (old I-95 SB), starting just before the bridge in New Jersey and continuing across the bridge into Pennsylvania.
Backups and travel delays in the PA-bound direction are likely. Motorists are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations on mornings when concrete pouring takes place.
