BELLMAWR, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s lieutenant governor and transportation commissioner are heading to Camden County to mark the start of a project intended to untangle one of the area’s most jammed highway interchanges.

The project is intended to simplify the spot where Interstates 295 and 76 and Route 42 all come together just south of the Walt Whitman Bridge.

The spot is a major headache for commuters traveling to Philadelphia from parts of Camden and Gloucester Counties.

The project is expected to take eight years to complete and cost $900 million.
