New Jersey is well known for its many highways, but negotiating them can sometimes be confusing. I have compiled exit lists for all interstates and other superhighways in the state and point to point mileage lists for major surface federal and state highways. For the limited-access highways, I have identified each exit with the first sign on the highway indicating its approach. Towns and local facilities, such as educational institutions, hospitals and shopping malls, that may be reached from the exit are listed as are points of interest. The surface highway lists identify each town and county through which the road passes and provides links to points of interest at the intersection from which they may best be reached. In both cases, the point of interest links lead to detailed directions to the destination. Please take note of the distance of the attraction from the exit.
Where highways intersect, a link is provided to allow the user to continue on the intersecting highway, if so desired.
A note about I-95. Due to the cancellation of the Somerset Freeway, I-95 exists in two sections in New Jersey, one north and west of Trenton and one which follows the New Jersey Turnpike from Exit 7A north and connects the Turnpike with the George Washington Bridge. Since the roadway is continuous, I have included the northern section with the Turnpike list, even though the Turnpike is not signed north of Exit 18E. The southern section, which is part of a beltway around Trenton and is essentially a continuation of I-295, is listed separately. Currently, southbound travelers on I-95 must follow the Turnpike to Exit 7A, then take I-195 West and I-295 North to rejoin I-95; similarly northbound travelers must follow I-295 South to Exit 60A, then I-195 East to Exit 6, which connects with the Turnpike. Construction is underway in Pennsylvania to create a direct link from I-95 to the Pennsylvania Turnpike. I-95 will then be routed across the Delaware River to New Jersey Turnpike Exit 6 and up the Turnpike to connect with the northern section. This is due to be completed in 2018.
Finally, thanks to road blogger Zeffy, who created the templates for the interstate, US and state highway shields used here and provided public instructions on how to create road signs in PowerPoint.
