New Jersey State also has a unique location in the Northeast on the Atlantic Ocean. All its neighboring states, NY, CT, PA, and DE depend heavily on the services offered by NJ residents daily and on its highways, such as I-95, NJ Turnpike, I-80, I-83 etc. Even the newer highway Route 295 has become congested during rush hour commute.
