Now Open – New Shared-Use Path at the Scudder Falls Bridge
November 22, 2021
The new shared-use path and complex were unveiled on Thursday, November 16th. The path connects Lower Makefield on the Pennsylvania side with Ewing in New Jersey. The complex includes a 127-space park-n-ride lot located at the intersection of Taylorsville and Woodside roads in Lower Makefield as well as a comfort station housed in a restored stone structure that dates back to 1799. Bridge and trail ramp connections can accommodate pedestrians as well as cyclists and are ADA compliant. The new shared-use path improves access to the Delaware Canal towpath in Pennsylvania and the D & R Feeder Canal towpath in New Jersey, creating an additional loop trail for residents and visitors to enjoy. There are four overlook locations on the span to encourage all to take in the scenery. This project was funded by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.
