The primary purpose of the Scudder Falls Bridge Project is to improve safety and provide congestion relief in the I-295 (formerly I-95) corridor between S.R. 0332 in Lower Makefield Township, Pennsylvania; and, Bear Tavern Road Exit 75 in Ewing Township, New Jersey. The Project consists of replacing the existing Scudder Falls bridge carrying I-295 over the Delaware River; reconstruction of the flanking I-295 and Taylorsville Road (PA) and Route 29 (NJ) interchanges; widening of approximately 2 miles of approach roadway in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including three (3) separate overpass structures carrying I-295 traffic, new noise barriers and ITS improvements. The new bridge consists of two crossing structures with three travel lanes in each direction, flanked by auxiliary lanes to accommodate traffic entering and exiting the highway form the adjacent interchanges; widened left shoulders for future Bus Rapid Transit considerations; and, a pedestrian/bicycle shared-use path contiguous to the upstream structure, which connects to the canal towpaths on either side of the river on separate approaches. Adjacent to the bridge, in Pennsylvania, is a new All Electronic Tolling (AET) facility consisting of a new operations building and overhead gantry to accommodate toll collection at prevailing highway speeds. The construction contract was awarded in January 2017 with substantial completion scheduled for December 2021 and Final completion in May 2022.
