Mark from 42Freeway heads back to Bellmawr’s massive Direct Connect project, to review what has changed in the last few months. And yes, there are new things to talk about. This update is really a 7 min YouTube video (bottom of article) but we’ll highlight here in writing and photos the things in the video.
What Is Going On Next to Rt 42 in Bellmawr? Missing Moves! First “In Progress” Video Update (Oct 2020)
What are they building along Rt 42 in Bellmawr? A lot of digging and ramps going up?! It is the Missing Moves project which is to filling in the missing connections between Rt 42 and Rt 295… “Why can’t I get on 2955 South to Delaware?” Well soon you will be able to. They are moving fast and this is not the whole story! More to come!
Construction Behind Inspira Mullica Hill is a New Road to Connect 322 With Ellis Mill Road in Glassboro (CR 641 Spur)
From 55 North you can see the land clearing and construction taking place deep behind the new Inspira Hospital on Rt 322 in Mullica Hill. This development is a new County Road called 641 Spur, which will connect Rt 322 at Inspira with Ellis Mill Road in Glassboro. Basically they roadways are two adjacent exits on Rt 55, and this new road will give more direct access to the hospital from the South.
Bellmawr Missing Moves Project Awarded! Starts Spring 2020. $180 Million Project to Connect 42n to 295s (and back). Aerial Video!
Almost 20 years in the planning, but with the awarding of a $180 million contract in January, the long awaited Missing Moves project in Bellmawr, NJ will start construction THIS SPRING! Literally months away! The long awaited road will connect Route 42 North to 295 South, and of course in the opposite direction… 295 North to 42 South (and on to 55 and the AC Expressway)!
An update on the massive 295/76/42 Direct Connection project (Bellmawr NJ), with aerial photos and video! It may seem things have slowed down, but NJDOT says its progressing nicely and more visible progress starts again soon!
The new “covered roadway” tunnel which is part of the 42/295 reconstruction project has been in action for several weeks, with 42N-295N traffic routed through it. This weekend the second phase of the tunnel redirection went live, with the 76E (traffic from Philly) which is heading to 295N, also moving through the tunnel. There were some commuter concerns with how lanes merged before the tunnel and would the two additional 76E lanes “fit” into the tunnel.. well NJDOT surprises us all as they do fit FIVE lanes in the tunnel. But watch out for the right side lane merge AFTER the tunnel.
