For those traveling by car or truck on I-95 - I-295 around Trenton NJ. 
About the "loop" around Trenton, from the PA border, across US-1, to 
I-195 east/west (a major route to VCFed facilities at Infoage / Wall NJ).

There's a signage and exit-number change on that loop. The entire loop 
is now signed "I-295", from the PA-NJ border to I-195. Formerly the NJ 
segment from the Scudders Falls bridge between PA and NJ, to US-1, was 
called "I-95". So your GPS maps may/may not show, and your eyeballs 
will see, signs which look a little different. I live in that area.

There's also changes now and in years to come, at the PA Turnpike 
(I-276) and how it connects to the NJ Turnpike and to I-95 in PA. I 
don't follow that in detail and don't use those routes. But in several 
years, that Scudders Falls bridge will be replaced and become a toll 
bridge. Construction is happening there NOW and it may slow down traffic 
and line the road with blinky-light barriers.

Old folks like me, who use paper maps and navigate by signs and 
eyeballs, not some digital GPS voice, pay attention to this stuff. 
Please, no snarky remarks, I'm trying to do my driving friends a favor 
here, not expose myself to ridicule.
