The highway begins on the southeast side of Trenton, the capital of New Jersey, where State Route 29 merges into I-195 at its interchange with Interstate 295, the eastern bypass of the Philadelphia metropolitan area. The highway then has 2×2 lanes, and you pass through some eastern suburbs of Trenton. At the height of the suburb of Allentown, one crosses the New Jersey Turnpike, also known as Interstate 95. After this, you leave the metropolitan area of Philadelphia, and you pass through the rare countryside of New Jersey.
Soon one arrives at the first suburbs of New York, which lie somewhat inland from the large metropolitan area on the Atlantic coast. These suburbs are 100 kilometers from New York. One crosses US 9, which runs to Perth Amboy, a larger suburb of New York. Not far after, the highway ends at the Garden State Parkway, the major toll road along New Jersey’s Atlantic coast. State Route 138 then continues as an expressway to Belmar.

In the late 1950s, a highway was first proposed between the capital Trenton and New Jersey’s burgeoning east coast. In 1965 these plans became more serious, and a route was established. Construction was considered a priority for 1975. Construction of Interstate 195 began in October 1968. In 1972, the first section was completed, spanning 22 kilometers between Allentown and Jackson Mills. In 1974 followed 12 kilometers between White Horse and Allentown and in 1979 13 kilometers followed between Jackson Mills and Squankum. In 1981, 8 kilometers were completed between Squankum and the Garden State Parkway. In 1987, 2 kilometers to the east of Trenton followed and in 1990 a few hundred meters with the interchange with Interstate 295 were opened to traffic.

Interstate 280 or I -280 is an Interstate Highway in the U.S. state of New Jersey.

At Lake Hiawatha, I-280 exits from Interstate 80, which runs from Pennsylvania to New York. Initially there will be 2×2 lanes available. One passes through the green suburbs, all located in wooded area. At Roseland, the highway widens to 2×3 lanes. From West Orange, 2×4 lanes are available. In Orange there are already some work locations, located along the highway. In East Orange one crosses the Garden State Parkway. Then you arrive in Newark, the largest city in New Jersey with 274,000 inhabitants. One passes right along the center. Newark can also function well as an independent city. The highway eventually ends at Interstate 95 in the suburb of Kearny.
In 1949, the 2×2 William J. Stickel Memorial Bridge opened over the Passaic River between Newark and Harrison. In the 1950s, it was proposed to extend the highway west through Newark. At the time, the state of New Jersey wanted federal funding for State Route 3 in New Jersey, but this route was not built to Interstate Highway design requirements, so could not get funding. Instead, the Essex Freeway was proposed in 1957 between I-80 in Parsippany and the New Jersey Turnpike in Kearny. In 1958, the number I-280 was established for the Essex Freeway. The highway was initially proposed as an elevated highway through Newark and Orange, but eventually became a sunken highway after protests.
Construction began in 1960 in Orange and West Orange. Between 1966 and 1973, 23 kilometers between Parsippany and Harrison were completed. There was still 5 kilometers missing through Harrison. The last stretch, between the William J. Stickel Memorial Bridge and the New Jersey Turnpike opened in 1980.
