This is the beginning of the New Jersey Turnpike southbound in Ridgefield Park Village.  The roadway splitting to the left is Winant Avenue (US 46) westbound.  Filmed August 7, 2000.



This is the beginning of the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) northbound in Pennsville Township.  The roadway splitting to the right is the beginning of the Camden Freeway (I-295).  Filmed July 23, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike southbound just past the split from Winant Avenue (US 46) in Ridgefield Park Village.  This interchange with Winant Avenue (US 46) was the original terminus of the turnpike when it opened in 1952, and part of its original 'trumpet' configuration remains, as is visible here.  Filmed August 7, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) northbound just south of Exit 1(East US 40, Atlantic City) in Carney's Point Township.  Filmed July 23, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) northbound just north of Exit 1(East US 40, Atlantic City) in Carney's Point Township.  The Exit 1 toll booth is just ahead and was still in its original condition at the time.  Note the "To I-95" assembly on the left.  These signs are posted along the entire NJ 700 section (from Exit 1 to Exit 6) in both directions.  Filmed July 23, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike southbound past the Winant Avenue (US 46) split in Ridgefield Park Village.  This is still within the original terminal interchange, though the ramp to Teaneck Road above was not originally part of the design.  It was added in 1971 when NJDOT constructed the New Jersey Turnpike Northern Extension (I-95) to connect the mainline turnpike to the Bergen-Passaic Expressway (I-80 and I-95).  Filmed August 7, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) northbound north of Exit 1(East US 40, Atlantic City) in Carney's Point Township.  Note that the roadway is still in its original 4-lane configuration.  Filmed July 23, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike southbound just before merging with the end of the New Jersey Turnpike Northern Extension (I-95) in Ridgefield Park Village.  This marks the end of the original beginning interchange heading south, as the roadway from here south to the Vince Lombardi Service Plaza was completely redesigned in 1971.  When first constructed, this ramp continued curving to the left parallel to the northbound ramp and became the southbound mainline roadway.  In the redesigned interchange, this ramp now curves right and underneath the New Jersey Turnpike Northern Extension (I-95) and loops around to merge with it, the extension being favored as the mainline in the new design.  The redesign was part of NJDOT's construction of the turnpike extension, which connects the original mainline turnpike with the Bergen-Passaic Expressway (I-80 and I-95).  Filmed August 7, 2000.

This is the New Jersey Turnpike car lanes (I-95) southbound just north of Exit 12(Carteret, Rahway) in Linden.  This is within the Linden oil refinery district, another source of the bad imagery of the turnpike in popular culture.  Filmed August 7, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike car lanes (I-95) southbound at Exit 12(Carteret, Rahway) in Carteret Boro.  Note the wide, grassed median.  This is the only location on the entire original mainline of the turnpike that has such a feature.  Filmed August 7, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike (I-95) northbound just south of Exit 7(US 206, Bordentown, Trenton, McGuire Air Force Base, Fort Dix) in Mansfield Township.  Note the I-95 shield on the left.  This is the first shield on the northbound side of the mainline that doesn't have a "To".  In other words, it is the first indication that this section of the turnpike is actually part of I-95.  These shields were posted in 1997.  Until 1985, the I-95 designation did not join the turnpike until Exit 10 via the Middlesex Freeway (I-287).  Filmed July 23, 2000.

This is the New Jersey Turnpike (I-95) northbound at Exit 7A(I-195, Trenton, Hamilton, Shore Points) in Washington Township.  Here, the unofficial I-95 Western Route leaves the Central Jersey Expressway (I-195) and joins the official I-95 (which is part of the I-95 Easern Route south of here).  Filmed July 23, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike car lanes (I-95) southbound at Exit 10(I-287, NJ 440, Perth Amboy, Metuchen, Edison Township, Outerbridge Crossing) in Edison Township.  This is where I-95 was originally proposed to leave the turnpike.  It had been planned to follow the Middlesex Freeway (I-287) for a few miles before heading south towards Trenton via the Somerset Freeway.  With the cancellation of the Somerset Freeway in 1982, I-95 was rerouted to the turnpike in 1985.  However, new I-95 shields were not posted along the turnpike south to Exit 6 until 1997.  These included the one on the lower left attatched to the gantry support, complete with a "South" direction marker.  Filmed August 7, 2000.

This is the New Jersey Turnpike (I-95) northbound just north of Exit 8(NJ 33, Hightstown, Freehold, East Windsor) in East Windsor Township.  Note the overpass ahead.  This overpass, constructed in 1999 as part of the Hightstown Bypass (NJ 133), has ample unused space on either side.  This is a strong hint that this section will be dualized into separate car and truck lanes relatively soon, perhaps as part of an improvements program coninciding with the I-95/I-276 Interchange Project in Pennsylvania.  The section of the turnpike between Exit 7A and Exit 8A is the most congested section of the entire turnpike system and is in desperate need of widening.  Filmed August 9, 2000.

This is the New Jersey Turnpike (I-95) southbound just north of Exit 8(NJ 33, Hightstown, Freehold, East Windsor) in Cranbury Township.  The cause of the 2-mile backup in the southbound roadway turned out to be the overturned tractor trailor visible on the left in the northbound lanes.  This sort of delay is called 'rubber-necking' because its cause is motorists who slow down to see what happened.  Filmed August 7, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike car lanes (I-95) northbound at Exit 9(NJ 18, US 1, New Brunswick, East Brunswick, Rutgers University) in East Brunswick Township.  Filmed August 9, 2000.

This is the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) southbound south of Exit 2(US 322, Swedesboro, Chester Pa) in Woolwich Township.  Filmed August 16, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) southbound north of Exit 1(Penns Grove, Deepwater) in Carney's Point Township.  Note the "End Of Turnpike - 2 Miles" sign on the right.  If there was once a similar sign approaching the north end, it has long since been taken down.  Filmed August 16, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike Eastern Spur (I-95) northbound south of the merge of the New Jersey Turnpike Western Spur (I-95 as the Western Route) and New Jersey Turnpike Eastern Spur (I-95 as the Eastern Route) in North Bergen.  The surrounding marshes of the Meadowlands are visible on the right.  Filmed August 9, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) southbound just north of Exit 1(Penns Grove, Deepwater) in Carney's Point Township.  Just ahead is the Exit 1 toll barrier, which was still in the same form as it was when the turnpike first opened in 1952 at the time of filming.  Filmed August 16, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike Eastern Spur (I-95) northbound at the merge of the New Jersey Turnpike Western Spur (I-95 as the Western Route) and the New Jersey Turnpike Eastern Spur (I-95 as the Eastern Route) in Ridgefield Boro.  This is the only location where the original carriageway has been redesigned, as it no longer leads directly to US 46.  The redesign took place in 1971 when NJDOT built the New Jersey Turnpike Northern Extension, which connects the mainline turnpike to the Bergen-Passaic Expressway.  The new extension was necessary in order for I-95 to directly connect to the George Washington Bridge.  Note the old signage, which has since been replaced.  Filmed August 9, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) southbound at Exit 1(Penns Grove, Deepwater) in Carney's Point Township.  The minimal sign for Exit 1 is at the right, just past the ramp.  Filmed August 16, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike northbound at Exit 18 in Ridgefield Park Village.  The right lane, which is currently an exit from the mainline of the New Jersey Turnpike Northern Extension (I-95) to Winant Avenue (US 46), was once the northbound mainline turnpike.  The southbound mainline, which was once parallel, was partially redesigned when the New Jersey Turnpike Northern Extension (I-95) was built, and now loops under the current mainline.  The New Jersey Turnpike Northern Extension (I-95) splits left and continues north to the Bergen-Passaic Expressway (I-95), while the original mainline splits right and continues to Winant Avenue (US 46).  The old signage above has since been replaced.  Filmed August 9, 2000.



This is the end of the New Jersey Turnpike (NJ 700) southbound in Carney's Point Township.  The end of the Camden Freeway (I-295) is merging with the end of the turnpike from the right here.  I-295 continues to the Delaware Memorial Bridge as the Delaware Memorial Bridge Approach, which is the section of roadway directly ahead.  Unlike in the north, where there are multiple connections to the George Washington Bridge (I-95), this is the only connection to the Delaware Memorial Bridge, and it was built with the turnpike instead of before or afterwards.  It was only later incorporated into the Interstate System as I-295.  Filmed August 16, 2000.



This is the New Jersey Turnpike northbound at Exit 18 in Ridgefield Park Village.  The northbound ramps are still in their original design and form a 'trumpet' interchange.  The ramp to Winant Avenue (US 46) westbound crosses the roadway and loops around, while the ramp to Winant Avenue (US 46) eastbound curves right and merges with Winant Avenue (US 46).  The old sigage above has since been replaced.  Filmed August 9, 2000.



This is the end of the New Jersey Turnpike northbound at Winant Avenue (US 46) in Ridgefield Park Village.  The northbound ramp merges with Winant Avenue (US 46) eastbound here, just as it has since the turnpike opened in 1952.  Winant Avenue (US 46) continues east to the George Washington Bridge and formed the original link from the turnpike to the bridge.  It was superceded by the New Jersey Turnpike Northern Extension (I-95) and the Bergen-Passaic Expressway (I-95) in 1971.  Filmed August 9, 2000.
