About US 202 in New Jersey
U.S. Route 202 runs from New Castle, Delaware northeast to Bangor, Maine. This route is considerably longer than US 2, its parent route. In New Jersey, the 80.31-mile US 202 runs from the New Hope-Lambertville Toll Bridge to the New York border in Mahwah, Bergen County. This road is a part of a major highway merge at the Somerville Circle that sits on the border between Bridgewater Township and Raritan Borough. Along its journey through the state, US 202 passes through the communities of Flemington, Somerville, Morristown Parsippany-Troy Hills, Oakland, and Wayne, and through the counties of Hunterdon, Morris, Somerset, Passaic, and Bergen. This route also encounters many major roads within the state.
New Jersey US 202 Accidents
As a frequently used highway by almost all types of vehicles, US 202 is one of the state’s most accident-prone highways. While some portions of the route have four lanes and six lanes, much of the northern portion of the road only has two lanes. According to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, this freeway carries about 10,000 vehicles each day at the New Hope-Lambert Bridge, and the number rises to about 25,000 vehicles at the NJ 31 junction in Ringoes.
On a busy freeway like U.S. Route 202, an accident involving multiple vehicles can easily occur. While even a collision at a relatively low speed can cause devastating injuries, vehicles often run at high speeds in uncongested portions of highways, which could make the resulting injuries even more catastrophic.
Common injuries sustained by victims in traffic accidents are contusions, fractures, and cuts. More serious accidents often result in spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, paralysis, disfigurement, amputation, and even fatal injuries. To seek compensation for the injuries and losses of the victims, a personal injury claim should be made against the potentially liable parties.
