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)!
An update on the massive 295/76/42 Direct Connection project (Bellmawr NJ), with aerial photos and video! It may seem things have slowed down, but NJDOT says its progressing nicely and more visible progress starts again soon!
Remodeling construction is well on its way at the former Goodwill store on the Black Horse Pike in Bellmawr. Sources involved tell us that Enterprise Rent-A-Car has taken a long term lease for the property, and are doing significant remodeling ahead of the opening (well that's obvious!).
The new Super Wawa being developed in Brooklawn NJ at Rt 130 and Browning Road... is scheduled to open on October 10th. Associates in the Bellmawr Wawa (Browning and Park) are saying their store is closing Oct 9 and the next day employees will report to work in the new Brooklawn location.
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.
Philadelphia Inquirer Columnist Kevin Riordan wrote a piece on 42Freeway.com and me... Mark Matthews! It appeared online first on Friday, and is printed in today's South Jersey Sunday edition of the paper (which has been avail since Saturday). Read on for some of my impressions of the experience!
