Traffic shifts in place for Scudder Falls bridge replacement

This week, traffic has shifted on I-95 throughout the entire 4.4-mild Scudder Falls bridge replacement project.

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 earthmoving, drainage installations, and eventual roadway widening in the highway median – one of the major elements of the multi-faceted Scudder Falls 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.

(Note: Two travel lanes will be provided in a respective peak travel direction during weekday commuting periods: 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. along I-95 northbound and 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. along I-95 southbound. The aforementioned two-lane travel periods apply to the PA I-95 segment, the Scudder Falls Bridge and the NJ I-95 segment between the bridge and the Route 579/Bear Tavern Road interchange Exit 2.)
