This is the beginning of the Camden Freeway, 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.  This also resulted in I-295 from US 1 to I-195 and I-195 from I-295 to the New Jersey Turnpike becoming the unofficial I-95 (Western Route).  Filmed July 20, 1999.



This is the beginning of the Camden Freeway section of I-95 (Western Route) south, a.k.a. I-295 north, in Hamilton Township.  The main freeway is at the end of this ramp from I-195 west.  Between 1987 and 1994, this was a two-lane divided roadway connecting I-295 south to I-195 east, and I-195 west to I-295 north.  When the permanent ramp from I-295 south to I-195 east was completed in 1994, this ramp, which carries the unofficial I-95 (Western Route) between I-195 and I-295, was reconfigured to its current form.  Filmed August 13, 1999.
