Interstate 295 North - Bellmawr to Burlington

Home » Guides » New Jersey » Interstate 295 North - Bellmawr to Burlington

Work broke ground in March 2013 on the I-295 Direct Connect project, major reconstruction of the Interstate 295, I-76 east and Route 42 north interchange complex. Expected to take four years to complete, the last of the four contracts is scheduled to commence upon completion of Contract 3. Contract 3 completes the relocation of the I-295 mainline that eliminated the side by side route with I-76 at the north end of Route 42 (North South Freeway). Estimated for completion in 2028, work also replaces the substandard ramps between the two freeways, with the last joining I-295 south with I-76 west and I-76 west with I-295 north.
