More Direct Connection Tunnel Changes: FIVE Lanes In, Merge to Four After Tunnel

  • February 24, 2019
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.
