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!
The new “covered roadway” tunnel which is part of the 42/295 reconstruction project has been in action for several weeks, with 42N-295N traffic routed through it. This weekend the second phase of the tunnel redirection went live, with the 76E (traffic from Philly) which is heading to 295N, also moving through the tunnel. There were some commuter concerns with how lanes merged before the tunnel and would the two additional 76E lanes “fit” into the tunnel.. well NJDOT surprises us all as they do fit FIVE lanes in the tunnel. But watch out for the right side lane merge AFTER the tunnel.

The “Tunnel” that everyone has seen while traveling 42 and 295 goes “live” during Superbowl weekend! There are two sets of changes coming, and we explain the traffic lights! Read on!
The Bellmawr Missing Moves road project is a large $160 Million project slated to start late in 2019. This is primarily a LONG video three in segments: Missing Moves, Bellmawr Landfill Development, and Direct Connection Video Update. 42 mins long!
It’s massive. Probably the largest and most impactful road project in South Jersey in 70 years. And no one seems to know the. With support columns going up, 42Freeway video tries to answer questions.
