I-295 begins at an interchange with Interstate 95 and Interstate 276 near Bristol, a small city northeast of Philadelphia. On site, I-95 makes a TOTSO, I-95 from Philadelphia becomes I-295 around Trenton here. I-276 from King of Prussia becomes I-95 towards New York. I-295 then forms a 2×2 lane freeway through suburban areas northeast of Philadelphia and southwest of Trenton. The large Oxford Valley Mall is just off I-295. Here is also a cloverleaf with US 1. Near Yardley follows the bridge over the Delaware River. The river forms the border with the state of New Jersey, after which theInterstate 295 in New Jersey continues and forms a circle around the state capital Trenton.
I-295 was originally constructed as part of Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania and opened to traffic in 1969, with the exception of the Scudder Falls Bridge over the Delaware River on the New Jersey border which opened in 1961. I-95 was planned to run west of Trenton and then toward Newark, New Jersey. However, the missing section north of Trenton was never constructed. Therefore, an interchange was constructed between I-95 and I-276, after which I-95 was routed over I-276 south and east around Trenton. The old I-95 west of Trenton in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey became part of I-295. I-95 was renumbered in early 2018.
Work began in 2018 to replace the aging Scudders Falls Bridge over the Delaware River on the New Jersey border. The new bridge is a toll bridge and is twice as wide as the old bridge, with 2×3 lanes for through traffic and one weaving lane in each direction. The first new span opened on 10 July 2019. The second span opened on August 18, 2021.
Every day, 55,000 to 65,000 vehicles travel on I-295.
