In Spring 2009, the story started going viral locally, and then even further out... that Disney was planning on building a new Theme Park in the Bellmawr Landfill. A "to be built" Patco station there would connect visitors to the Philadelphia historic sites. Years later it still gets brought up. Was it a rumor? or Real?
Almost 20 years in the planning, but with the awarding of a $180 million contract in January, the long awaited Missing Moves project in Bellmawr, NJ will start construction THIS SPRING! Literally months away! The long awaited road will connect Route 42 North to 295 South, and of course in the opposite direction... 295 North to 42 South (and on to 55 and the AC Expressway)!
On Sunday June 2nd, Mark from 42Freeway was a guest on area podcast "Small Bites". While it's an hour long radio podcast show, I was featured in the first 10 minutes of the show... so if you want to jump ahead to listen follow the link in the article to the show page to stream or listen via an app. I talk some history of my blogging, Bellmawr's Bass Pro Shops, new restaurants in Washington Township, future plans for the site and more.
