This is the beginning of the New Jersey section of the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, crossing the Delaware River on the Scudders Falls Bridge from Lower Makefield Township, Pennsylvania to Ewing Township, New Jersey.  Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the beginning of the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) south, in Hopewell Township, New Jersey.  This was not originally a main-line carriageway, but rather a high-speed, high-capacity directional ramp that was meant to connect the Camden Freeway (I-295) north, which originally ended here, with the Scudders Falls Expressway (I-95) south.  As such, this section was only 4 lanes until the early 1990's, when it was expanded to 6 lanes.  The ramp from I-295 north to I-95 north, the Somerset Freeway, would have split from the main roadway about 1,000 feet back.  This is all because of the unbuilt Somerset Freeway (I-95) between here and the Middlesex Freeway (I-287) in Piscataway.  Filmed August 13, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, at exit 1(NJ 29, Trenton, Lambertville) in Ewing Township, New Jersey.  Note the "North I-95 New York" sign overhead.  Wouldn't it be nice if you could actually go directly to New York?   Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) south, at exit 4(NJ 31, Ewing, Pennington) in Hopewell Township.  Note the reappearence of the northbound lanes on the left, following the 'split' that was left to make room for the ramps to the Somerset Freeway.  Filmed August 13, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, at exit 2(CR 579, West Trenton, Trenton-Mercer Airport) in Ewing Township.  Note the exposed rock cut on the right, and that the the roadway is now 6 lanes instead of 4.   Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) south, south of exit 4(NJ 31, Ewing, Pennington) in Ewing Township.  The two overpasses ahead carry Lower Ferry Road and the Reading Railroad accross the expressway, which dips to allow the railroad to cross at the original grade.  Filmed August 13, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, south of exit 3(Scotch Road, Trenton-Mercer Airport) in Ewing Township.  This section is just north of Trenton-Mercer Airport, which is to the right behind the trees  Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) south, just south of exit 3(Scotch Road) in Hopewell Township.  This section is just north of Trenton-Mercer Airport, which is behind the trees on the left.  Filmed August 13, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, at exit 3(Scotch Road, Trenton-Mercer Airport) in Hopewell Township.  Note the "North I-95 Use South I-295" sign above, indicating the disapperance of the I-95 designation ahead.  Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) south, at exit 2(CR 579, West Trenton, Trenton-Mercer Airport) in Ewing Township.  Filmed August 13, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, north of exit 3(Scotch Road, Trenton-Mercer Airport) in Hopewell Township.  The overpass ahead is for the Reading Railroad, where the expressway dips to allow the railroad to pass above at the original grade.  Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) south, north of exit 1(NJ 29, Trenton, Lambertville) in Ewing Township.  Filmed August 13, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, at exit 4(NJ 31, Ewing, Pennington) in Ewing Township.  Since this was filmed, the interchange has been reconstructed to allow access from NJ 31 north to I-95 north.  To accomodate the new ramp, the exit 4B ramp was eliminated, and the exit 4A ramp was modified to allow access to NJ 31 north.  Therefore, there is now only an exit 4, and no longer the separate exits 4A and 4B shown here.   Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) south, at exit 1(NJ 29, Trenton, Lambertville) in Ewing Township.  The straight section of highway just ahead is the Scudders Falls Bridge to Pennsylvania.  The ramp on the right leads to NJ 29, through one of the most convoluted interchanges ever concieved, at least to me, with a maze of multiple ramps with at-grade intersections.  Filmed August 13, 1999.



This is the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, just north of exit 4(NJ 31, Ewing, Pennington) in Hopewell Township.  This is now approaching where I-95, which would now have been the Somerset Freeway, would have continued to the left and north, and I-295, the Camden Freeway, which originally began just ahead, would have continued to the right and south.  As a result, the opposing lanes are now beginning to pass behind bushes on the left, as the space between the carriageways widens.  This space was meant for ramps to the unbuilt Somerset Freeway which was supposed to continue I-95 north to Piscataway.  Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the end of the New Jersey section of the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) south, as it crosses the Delaware River on the Scudders Falls Bridge from Ewing Township, New Jersey to Lower Makefield, Pennsylvania.  Filmed August 13, 1999.



This is the end of the Scudders Falls Expressway, I-95 (Western Route) north, in Hopewell Township.  This was originally meant to be a high-speed, high-capacity ramp from I-95 north, the Scudders Falls Expressway, to I-295 south, the Camden Freeway.  Because I-95 north of here, the Somerset Freeway, was not built between here and the Middlesex Freeway (I-287) in Piscataway, this was expanded to 6 lanes from the original 4 in the early 1990's, and the official I-95 designation was extended 4 miles east along I-295, the Camden Freeway.  From here, I-95 (Western Route) north continues as the Camden Freeway.  Filmed July 20, 1999.
