Last week, New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced left lane closures on Route 42 in both directions as the I-295/Route 42 Missing Moves project advances in Bellmawr.

The closures were necessary to install steel beams.

These photographs and video were taken on December 18, 2022 of the beams that have been installed so far. I’m hoping that the weather will cooperate this week so I can take the drone up for some aerial shots.

About Missing Moves

The $180 million federally-funded project will build new ramps connecting Route 42 northbound to I-295 southbound, and I-295 northbound to Route 42 southbound in order to allow for the direct movement of traffic between the two roadways.

These are commonly known as the “missing moves.”

The project will also include the demolition and reconstruction of the Creek Road Bridge over I-295 between Route 42 and Almonesson Road.

The majority of the project will be built off of the roadways and will have minimal impact on traffic on Route 42 and I-295. 

The project is expected to be completed in late 2023.
