- A retaining wall along Interstate 295 in South Jersey shifted and partially collapsed, causing concern there. The problem is in the northbound lanes where the road crosses over Essex Avenue in [? Belmar ?] if you know that area. The right lane is closed so crews can work to perform emergency stabilization of that wall. No timetable yet on when the work will be completed. Drivers should expect delays in that area and on Route 40 to northbound as well.
