“Be forewarned: The tricky maze where Interstates 295 and 76 and Route 42 converge in Camden County – a main artery between Philadelphia and the Shore – is about to become a construction zone for at least eight years.
“The project will take place in bits and pieces over four phases and cost $900 million. When finished, it will directly connect I-295, ending the wending and weaving motorists now endure to navigate the interstate where it meets I-76 and Route 42.”
“Calling the project a “no-brainer” in terms of need, Transportation Secretary James Simpson listed some of its features: 10 new bridges, one bridge widening, two temporary bridges, 22 retaining walls, 40 sign structures, and 15,000 feet of new or improved noise barriers.
“The main element will be a curved viaduct that will cross over I-76/Route 42 to connect I-295. Work on the northbound section is slated to begin in 2016 and it is expected to open in 2019. The southbound section will open in 2021.”
