The construction on this project has been completed.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is currently improving an eight-mile stretch of I-295 in Gloucester and Camden

counties, New Jersey. The construction area extends from Route 45 (Exit 24) in Gloucester County to Haddonfield-Berlin Road (Exit 32) in Camden County. Construction began in June 2009, and is expected to last 36 months, with an estimated completion date of July 2012. Funding for this project has been made available under the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA).

The focus of this project will be on pavement

rehabilitation/reconstruction. This will be done through pavement surface milling and overlay, or by complete removal and reconstruction of the entire pavement structure. Included is the replacement of five bridge decks, northbound and southbound, in the vicinity of the Route 30 interchange, substandard geometric features will be improved, such as increasing the length of acceleration and deceleration lanes, cross slopes, and the width of the existing shoulders where possible. Other safety measures will include the installation of guide rails, drainage, closed circuit cameras and speed detectors along the corridor to allow monitoring of traffic flow and congestion.

The I-295 project will be constructed in two segments called "work zones" to minimize impacts to local businesses and residents and to reduce the number of ramp closures at one time.

  • Work Zone 1 - I-295 between Route 45 and Route 42
  • Work Zone 2 - I-295 between Route 42 and County Route 561

Monday through Friday during morning and evening rush hours, three lanes of traffic in each direction will be maintained from 6 am to 8 pm, to minimize traffic congestion through the work zone. North of Route 42, three lanes of traffic will be maintained until 9 pm.

NJDOT has communicated with local officials and residents regarding the I-295 rehabilitation/reconstruction project since 2006 and has incorporated many of the communities' recommended improvements into the project.

The project also includes the construction of a concrete fence (pdf 977k) at Exit 24 in the Westville/Westville Grove area.
