This Stretch of Highway in South Jersey is the State’s Most Dangerous
A curved and accident-prone section of highway in Camden County is reportedly the most dangerous in all the Garden State.
Route 295, from Route 42 at Bellmawr to Warwick Road at Lawnside, has just topped NJ.com's list of the 12 Most Dangerous Highways in New Jersey. That particular stretch of road is an artery for commuters heading to Philadelphia by way of the Walt Whitman Bridge. It is sandwiched between an interchange with I-76, and Route 42 and Route 30 in Camden County that's tricky to maneuver. More accidents occurred there in 2016 than on any other highway in New Jersey. Reportedly, the state DOT's "Direct Connection" project to improve the merging of those highways.
It's definitely one of those 'cringe and bear it' driving experiences, so please be careful!
