Advancing NJDOT’s Direct Connection with Intelligent Transportation Systems

ITS is being employed in southern New Jersey as a traffic mitigation tool to enhance traffic safety and operations during construction of the U.S. Route 295 / Route 42 / Interstate I-76 (Interchange) Direct Connection project. This interchange serves as a gateway for travel to and from Philadelphia and Camden by people who live in this part of New Jersey. It has had a poor crash history due in part because its outdated design is no longer capable of safely accommodating over 250,000 vehicles per day.
