Accelerating Conti’s Route 295 Project

April 19 2017

Conti has accelerated its progress on the New Jersey Department of Transportation Route 295/42/I-76 Direct Connection project in South Jersey, as recently reported in Engineering News-Record at South Jersey’s Big Road Fix.

The Route 295/42/I-76 Contract 2 Direct Connection is a project designed to resolve an all-too-familiar bottleneck for regional traffic from Philadelphia to New York City. Conti is accelerating the work with use of column-supported embankments that allow faster soil settlement.

“The project team’s integrity, innovation and creative problem solving has really helped move this project along,” said Conti’s Project Manager, Greg Kerrigan. “It’s great to see the project being recognized by the industry.”

With the noise walls along Route 295 completed, storm water management upgrades finished, and extensive pile-driving activity underway, new ramps should be open to traffic soon and local commuters can surely expect some relief this summer.
