Scudders Falls Bridge P3 In Limbo

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) on June 26 announced the retirement of Executive Director Frank G. McCartney to become Toll Industry Market Leader for Parsons Brinckerhoff. His sudden departure is expected to delay for months a board decision on whether the $320-million Scudders Falls bridge carrying I-95 over the Delaware River will be a toll concession.

A study of procurement options by KPMG and Nossaman LLP was completed in December but has been held “close to the vest,” says a project advisor. An availability pay revenue model is being considered, he says, to give governments control of regional toll rates.
