Driving troubles along Route 295

November 24, 2009 As part of an 8 mile resurfacing and reconstruction project between exits 24 in Westville and 32 in Cherry Hill, stop signs have been installed on the ramps entering the highway.

For motorists it means coming to a full stop before accelerating onto 295 and into high speed traffic. It's especially scary given the number of big trucks that are bearing down.

New Jersey DOT says engineers think this is the best way to get construction barriers to give drivers a better view of what's coming. Meanwhile some either don't see the big red octagon or have decided to ignore it and just blow through it.

The roadwork on 295 is a 36 month project funded with $60-million in federal stimulus money. The completion date is set for 2012.
