would it be allot of traffic(congestion) to commute on the turnpike everyday. Or does it move well? How much would the tolls be? Appreciate any help.
Thanks

Nope - the traffic moves just fine barring any accidents (the NJTP is 2 lanes from Del Memorial to Exit 4 - NJ Rt 73).

Going to Haddon Township would probably have you getting off at exit 4 (NJ Rt 73) - the cost during peak hours is $1.90 each way. If you use an EZ Pass and travel during off-peak hours, the cost drops to $1.40. I'd suggest an EZ Pass account - faster through the tolls (the end of NJTP toll is at speed (55 MPH) pass through).

Another thing to consider is the Del Memorial Bridge tolls...$3.00 leaving Jersey (you can get in for free but you always pay to leave) currently - they do have commuter discounts available to really cut down on the costs.

Just a note - I-295 is free and might get you closer to your destination - since it shares some lanes with NJ 42 for about 1/4 of a mile, it can get busy in the morning but generally isn't too bad either and will allow you to get off at different exists that may be closer than NJ 73 on the NJTP

That's good to know.
