Interstate 295 (abbreviated I-295) in New Jersey and Delaware is an auxiliary Interstate Highway, designated as a bypass around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The route begins at a junction with I-95 south of Wilmington, Delaware, and runs to another junction with I-95 north of Trenton, New Jersey. The route heads east from I-95 and crosses the Delaware River from Delaware to New Jersey on the Delaware Memorial Bridge concurrent with U.S. Route 40 (US 40). Upon entering New Jersey, the two routes split and I-295 runs parallel to the New Jersey Turnpike for most of its course in New Jersey. After a concurrency with US 130 in Gloucester County, I-295 has an interchange with I-76 and Route 42 in Camden County. The route continues northeast toward Trenton, where it intersects I-195 and Route 29 before bypassing the city to the east and ending at an interchange with US 1 in Lawrence Township, where the route becomes I-95 southbound.

Three portions of I-295 predate the Interstate Highway System: the Delaware Memorial Bridge and its approach, built in 1951, a section in Salem County built in 1953, and the portion concurrent with US 130, built in two sections that opened in 1948 and 1954. The route was designated on these sections in New Jersey in 1958 and in Delaware in 1959. The portion of I-295 connecting to I-95 in Delaware opened in 1963 while most of the route in New Jersey was finished by the 1980s. The last portion of I-295 to be completed, near the interchange with I-195 and Route 29, was finished in 1994. I-95 was originally supposed to continue northeast from the routes' junction near Trenton on the proposed Somerset Freeway, but this plan was canceled. Today, traffic on I-295 is directed to take I-195 (or surface street connections farther south) to the New Jersey Turnpike to reach New York City. The same route is prescribed for traffic on I-95 in Pennsylvania and near Trenton to bridge the gap with I-95 farther north. I-295 previously extended a few miles past the US 1 interchange to where it would have met the Somerset Freeway; in the 1990s, the portion past US 1 became part of I-95. As a result of the Pennsylvania Turnpike/Interstate 95 Interchange Project in Bristol Township, Pennsylvania, I-295 was originally planned to continue past its northern terminus along I-95, crossing into Pennsylvania and heading south to the interchange. Instead, it was decided that I-195 would be extended into Pennsylvania, moving the northern terminus of I-295 to the I-195 interchange south of Trenton.

Route description[edit]

Delaware[edit]

I-295/US 40 concurrency over the Delaware state border

I-295 begins at a large interchange with I-95 (Delaware Turnpike), I-495, US 202, and Delaware Route 141 (DE 141) south of Newport in New Castle County, Delaware. The northbound beginning of I-295 has direct ramps from both directions of I-95, southbound I-495, and southbound DE 141, while the southern end of I-295 had direct ramps to both directions of I-95, northbound I-495, and northbound DE 141. From this interchange, the highway heads southeast on the Delaware Turnpike, an eight-lane freeway maintained by the Delaware River and Bay Authority that passes to the northeast of suburban neighborhoods in Wilmington Manor. I-295 reaches an interchange with US 13/US 40. Here, the Delaware Turnpike ends and US 40 splits from US 13 by heading east concurrent with I-295. The road has an eastbound ramp to Landers Lane before it passes between residential neighborhoods and has an interchange with DE 9 north of New Castle. Past this interchange, the median of the freeway widens to include the Delaware River and Bay Authority headquarters, with the southbound direction coming to a toll plaza for the Delaware Memorial Bridge. I-295/US 40 continues east and passes over Norfolk Southern's New Castle Secondary before crossing the Delaware River on the twin-span Delaware Memorial Bridge.[4][5]

Pennsville to Westville[edit]

Upon reaching the east bank of the Delaware River, I-295/US 40 enters Pennsville Township in Salem County, New Jersey and heads east-southeast industrial areas. The freeway comes to an interchange with the southern terminus of US 130 and the western terminus of Route 49, at which point it also meets the southern terminus of the New Jersey Turnpike. Here, I-295 splits onto its own freeway maintained by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) while US 40 continues along the New Jersey Turnpike for a short distance before it splits to the southeast. A short distance later, the roadway enters Carneys Point Township and CR 551 merges onto I-295, with the four-lane freeway heading northeast. The highway comes to an interchange with Route 140, where CR 551 splits from I-295 by continuing east along Route 140. I-295 heads into wooded areas and features a rest area in the northbound direction. The freeway continues northeast and comes to a northbound weigh station before it reaches the Route 48 exit. The highway runs through a mix of farmland and woodland and enters Oldmans Township, where it comes to an interchange providing access to CR 643.[3][5]

I-295/US 130 southbound at the Route 44/CR 643 exit

I-295 crosses Oldmans Creek into Logan Township in Gloucester County and passes near some residential development and warehouses as it comes to the Center Square Road (CR 620) exit. The road crosses Raccoon Creek and reaches an interchange serving US 322/CR 536. Following this, the highway runs through agricultural and wooded areas before northbound US 130 merges into the freeway. At this point, I-295 and US 130 head east as a six-lane freeway with a narrow median and soon comes to the CR 684 exit. Continuing east, the freeway crosses into Greenwich Township and has an interchange with CR 607. After passing near Greenwich Lake, there are exits for CR 653 and CR 673 within a short distance of each other. I-295/US 130 reaches an interchange with CR 680 on the border of Greenwich Township and East Greenwich Township. The road runs through a portion of East Greenwich Township before crossing back into Greenwich Township and coming to an interchange with CR 678 and CR 667 on the border of Greenwich Township and Paulsboro.[3][5]

Past this point, the freeway runs through marshy areas of Mantua Creek and continues into West Deptford Township. Here, there is an exit for CR 656. Passing near more industrial areas, I-295/US 130 has an interchange with the Mid-Atlantic Parkway, which provides access to Route 44 as well as to CR 643 and CR 660. Continuing northeast, the freeway reaches an interchange with Route 44 and CR 640. At this point, Route 44 begins to parallel I-295/US 130 on its northwest side as the two roads cross the Woodbury Creek. Route 44 ends at a cul-de-sac that has a ramp from the southbound direction of I-295/US 130 prior to another interchange that provides access to CR 644. The freeway passes near some homes before US 130 splits from I-295 at an interchange that also has access to CR 642. The median of I-295 becomes wider again and it continues east through woods, coming to a southbound exit and northbound entrance with Route 45. The roadway passes over Conrail Shared Assets Operations's Vineland Secondary and passes through a small strip of Deptford Township before it has a partial interchange with CR 551, with a southbound exit and northbound entrance. The highway enters Westville and skirts near residential and commercial development, with another southbound exit and northbound entrance serving Route 47.[3][5]

Bellmawr to Lawrence Township[edit]

I-295 southbound at Warwick Road in Lawnside

I-295 crosses the Big Timber Creek into Bellmawr in Camden County and runs northeast before it comes to an interchange with the North-South Freeway, which serves as the northern terminus of Route 42 and the eastern terminus of I-76. At this interchange, the travel lanes of I-295 head north for a short distance along the outside of the North-South Freeway, with the northbound lanes of I-295 having access from northbound Route 42 and eastbound I-76 and access to westbound I-76 while the southbound lanes of I-295 having access from eastbound I-76 and access to southbound Route 42. Past this interchange, I-295 continues east as a six-lane freeway through wooded areas near suburban development, passing under Conrail Shared Assets Operations's Grenloch Industrial Track before reaching an interchange with Route 168. The highway heads east along the border between Haddon Heights to the north and Barrington to the south and passes over Conrail Shared Assets Operations's Beesleys Point Secondary before reaching the interchange with US 30 near its junction with Route 41/CR 573.[3][5]

The road fully enters Barrington before crossing into Lawnside, where it comes to a southbound exit and northbound entrance serving Warwick Road (CR 669). After this, I-295 curves northeast and passes through a corner of Tavistock before entering a part of Haddonfield and coming to a trumpet interchange providing access to the Woodcrest Station along the PATCO Speedline. At this point, the road becomes closely parallel to the New Jersey Turnpike to the southeast. The highway crosses into Cherry Hill and passes over the tracks carrying the PATCO Speedline and New Jersey Transit's Atlantic City Line before it reaches an interchange at CR 561. The roadway runs through wooded areas with suburban neighborhoods to the west and the New Jersey Turnpike to the east as it comes to a cloverleaf interchange at Route 70. Past this, the highway curves north farther west from the turnpike.[3][5]

I-295 southbound at the CR 635 exit in Mount Laurel

I-295 enters Mount Laurel in Burlington County upon crossing Pennsauken Creek and runs northeast through woods near development, reaching a cloverleaf interchange with Route 73 that provides access to the New Jersey Turnpike to the east. Past this, the road passes east-northeast near commercial development to the southeast of Moorestown Mall before curving northeast to closely follow the turnpike. The highway runs through wooded areas with close development and encounters an interchange at Route 38. The roadway passes over Conrail Shared Assets Operations's Pemberton Branch and CR 537 without an interchange and runs through a mix of fields and trees with occasional development, with an interchange serving CR 635. I-295 crosses the Rancocas Creek into Westampton Township and runs through an area of warehouses, where it has a cloverleaf interchange at CR 626. The highway runs north through rural land with nearby development and enters Burlington Township. Here, the road curves northeast and comes to a cloverleaf interchange at CR 541 that provides access to a commercial area that includes the Burlington Center Mall along with the New Jersey Turnpike. The freeway runs through woodland and heads into Springfield Township, where it passes a pair of closed rest areas in each direction. I-295 crosses Assiscunk Creek into Florence Township and heads through a mix of farm fields and trees before it enters Mansfield Township and comes to a cloverleaf interchange at CR 656 that provides access to nearby CR 543. The highway passes over the Pearl Harbor Memorial Extension of the New Jersey Turnpike without an interchange and continues through rural land into Bordentown Township, where a northbound exit and southbound entrance serves Rising Sun Road that provides access to US 206 and the New Jersey Turnpike. Past this, the road curves north and reaches an interchange with US 130 west of Bordentown before passing through woodland and crossing over New Jersey Transit's River Line.[3][5]

I-295 crosses Crosswicks Creek into Hamilton Township in Mercer County and runs through woods and marshland a short distance east of the Delaware River. A scenic overlook of the river is located along the southbound side of the road; access from the northbound lanes is provided by a pedestrian bridge over the highway. The freeway heads farther from the river and passes over the River Line again before it reaches a modified cloverleaf interchange serving the western terminus of I-195 and the southern terminus of the Route 29 freeway to Trenton. Following this interchange, the road heads northeast near residential neighborhoods and comes to an interchange at Arena Drive (CR 620) that provides access to nearby White Horse Avenue (CR 533). A short distance later, a southbound exit and northbound entrance provides access to northbound Olden Avenue (CR 622). I-295 continues through wooded areas with nearby development and curves north to come to an interchange at Route 33 and CR 606. The next interchange is a southbound exit and northbound entrance at CR 535. The highway continues through woods and reaches a cloverleaf interchange serving Sloan Avenue (CR 649). The roadway comes to a bridge over Amtrak's Northeast Corridor and crosses into Lawrence Township, where it curves northwest and comes to a modified interchange with US 1. At this point, I-295 ends and the freeway continues west as southbound I-95.[3][5]

The portion of I-295 running through New Jersey is sometimes referred to as the Camden Freeway by NJDOT.[6] As part of the Interstate Highway System, the entire length of I-295 is a part of the National Highway System.[7][8]

History[edit]

View north along I-295 from South Broad Street in Hamilton Township.

In the 1927 New Jersey state highway renumbering, Route 39 was legislated to begin at the Yardley–Wilburtha Bridge and bypass Trenton to the north and east before continuing south to Hammonton along present-day US 206.[9][10] Route 39, which was not built around Trenton, was decommissioned in the 1953 New Jersey state highway renumbering.[11][12]

Portions of I-295 in Salem and Gloucester counties predate the Interstate Highway System as part of freeway bypasses for the surface section of US 130/Route 44 through Carneys Point and between Bridgeport and Westville. The first section of the US 130/Route 44 bypass in Gloucester County between current exits 21 and 24 opened in 1948, with a second section between exits 14 and 21 opening in 1954. The section of the present highway between the southern terminus of the New Jersey Turnpike and the present-day CR 618 bridge was built as part of the US 130 bypass of Carneys Point in 1953.[13] The concurrent Route 44 designation was removed from US 130 in the 1953 New Jersey state highway renumbering,[11][12] and was later assigned to the former surface alignment of US 130 through Carneys Point and between Bridgeport and Westville.[14][15] The US 130 bypass of Carneys Point and the freeway in Gloucester County was designated as part of I-295 in 1958.[1]

Construction on the Delaware Memorial Bridge began in 1949.[16] At the same time, work was underway on the Delaware Memorial Bridge approach in Delaware, a divided highway which would begin at a directional-T interchange with US 13 in Farnhurst and head east to a cloverleaf interchange at New Castle Avenue (present DE 9) before leading to the bridge.[17][18] Construction on the US 13 interchange at Farnhurst began on July 12, 1950.[19] On August 16, 1951, the Delaware Memorial Bridge opened to traffic.[20] The Delaware Memorial Bridge and the approach road to US 13 became a part of US 40 following the opening of the bridge.[21] I-295 was designated onto the New Jersey approach of the bridge in 1958.[1] The same year, construction began for a bridge at the Farnhurst interchange that would link the US 40 approach to the Delaware Memorial Bridge to the Delaware Turnpike that was proposed to run west to the Maryland border.[22] A year later, the Farnhurst interchange and the bridge approach were upgraded to Interstate Highway standards, and it was designated as part of I-295.[23][24] Construction at the interchange connecting to the Delaware Turnpike at Farnhurst was completed in July 1961. On November 14, 1963, the Delaware Turnpike opened to traffic, with I-295 extended west along that road to I-95, which continued along the Delaware Turnpike towards Maryland.[25][26] In the middle of 1964, work began on a second span at the Delaware Memorial Bridge due to increasing traffic volumes. The second span of the bridge was opened to traffic in fall 1968.[27][28]

I-295 northbound in Hamilton Township

The remainder of I-295 through New Jersey was planned as Federal Aid Interstate Route 108, which was created by NJDOT in 1956. The road was built between the Big Timber Creek and Route 42 in 1958. The section of I-295 between Route 42 and Warwick Road was finished in 1960. The highway was built between US 130 and Route 45 in 1960 and was extended east to the Big Timber Creek a year later. In 1963, I-295 was completed between Warwick Road and just south of Route 70. A year later, the roadway was extended north to Route 73. The freeway was built between Route 73 and Route 38 in 1966. The section of I-295 between Carneys Point and Bridgeport was finished in 1968.[13] Following the completion of this section, US 130 reverted to its previous surface alignment through Carneys Point, replacing that portion of Route 44.[14] In 1972, the highway was finished between Route 38 and CR 541. I-295 was extended from CR 541 northward to US 130 near Bordentown a year later.[13] I-295 was completed from US 1 west to a proposed interchange with I-95 in Hopewell Township in 1974.[29] In 1975, the roadway was constructed from south of the Route 33 interchange north to US 1. The section of I-295 between Arena Drive and south of Route 33 was finished in 1984. In 1987, I-295 was built between I-195/Route 29 and Arena Drive, with the highway between I-195/Route 29 and Route 33 opened to traffic on August 16 of that year. The final section of I-295 between US 130 in Bordentown and I-195/Route 29 was finished in 1994.[13]

At its original northern terminus, the freeway continued west as I-95 toward the Scudder Falls Bridge while I-95 was proposed to head north along the Somerset Freeway.[29][30] In 1983, the Somerset Freeway portion of I-95 was cancelled as a result of community opposition.[31] In the 1990s, the northern terminus of I-295 was moved to its current location at the US 1 interchange, with the route west of there replaced by an extended I-95.[32] Due to the cancellation of the Somerset Freeway, a gap exists along I-95 in New Jersey. To bridge the gap, motorists from northbound I-95 are directed to follow I-295 southbound and I-195 eastbound to reach the New Jersey Turnpike to continue north along I-95, and vice versa.[5]

I-295, like many other highways in New Jersey, once had solar-powered emergency call boxes every mile (about 1.6 km); the use of the call boxes became limited due to the increasing popularity of cell phones. To save on maintenance costs, NJDOT removed these call boxes in 2005.[33]

NJDOT has broken ground on the missing express connection between I-295 and Route 42 to provide an easier connection between the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area and points south to Atlantic City and vice versa.[34] The project, dubbed the I-295/I-76/Route 42 Direct Connection, will reconstruct the dangerous and congested Route 42/I-295/I-76 interchange, which currently requires traffic on I-295 to use 35 mph (56 km/h) ramps that merge onto the North–South Freeway for a short distance, among a series of other indirect connections.[34] In 2007, "Alternative D" for the reconstructed interchange was selected, calling for I-295 to cross over the North–South Freeway. This interchange is projected to cost $900 million.[35] Construction began in 2013 and is scheduled to be complete in 2021.[36]

Future[edit]

The northern portion of I-295 will be affected by the Pennsylvania Turnpike/Interstate 95 Interchange Project in Bristol Township, Pennsylvania. With the completion of the project, I-95 will be redesignated along the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-276) to connect with the New Jersey Turnpike (currently the northern section of I-95) at exit 6, and the I-95 designation will be removed from the section north of the interchange in Pennsylvania. Under the original plan, I-295 would have been extended past its current terminus at US 1 along current I-95, across the Scudder Falls Bridge, and into Pennsylvania to the new interchange.[37][38]

However, in September 2005, the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania came to an agreement that, instead, I-195 would be extended along this section of I-95.[39] This means that the extended I-195 would replace the portion of I-95 between the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bristol Township, Pennsylvania, and US 1 in Lawrence Township, New Jersey. It would also replace I-295 north of exit 60 in Hamilton Township, New Jersey (its exit with I-195), truncating I-295 at that junction. This option would reduce the confusion of having I-295 parallel itself in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.[40] This proposal has received conditional approval from AASHTO.[41] Interchange renumbering will also take place that will coordinate with the future I-195 designation in Pennsylvania, as well as the new and current I-195 designation, from Ewing to Belmar in New Jersey.[42]

  42. ^ The Design Management Team, Pennsylvania Turnpike/Interstate 95 Interchange Project. "Exit renumbering". The re-designation of I-95 and a portion of I-295 in NJ as I-195, necessitated when the PA and NJ Turnpikes are designated as I-95, will indeed require new exit numbers on those interstates as well as the existing stretch of I-195 in NJ. This action, which is still approximately 5-6 years away since the new connection between I-95 and the PA Turnpike needs to be constructed, was acknowledged by the NJ Dept. of Transportation in their support of the re-numbering request to the Federal Highway Administration and AASHTO. Details regarding interim exit numbering and public relations efforts at that time are not available, but will be determined as the project moves forward.
