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.
Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream is coming to the Deptford Mall, moving into a prime location in the center court section of the Mall, next to the Disney Store and just steps away from Starbucks. The location was previously an ice cream store of a different kind… the “Dough Life” store closed in under a year, offering treats that looked like ice cream but were made from a custom cookie dough mix. Mall social media simply says Haagen Daz is targeting a summer opening.
Häagen-Dazs is a well known premium ice cream which started out in 1961 in Brooklyn Heights. Today the stores are owned by General Mills and Nestle, and also feature a variety of other frozen treat products such as ice cream bars, ice cream cakes, sorbet, frozen yogurt, and gelato.
The Deptford Mall store location has the “Coming Soon” construction walls up in place, and the Mall’s official Facebook page announced the new store about 2 weeks ago. Hat tip to Marc, who emailed us and brought this to our attention!
Earlier this year the Cherry Hill Mall also welcomed a new Haagen Daz store!
