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.
