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.
I just noticed that walls started going up at the new Carmax location in Winslow, on Cross-Keys Are directly across from the popular “Shops at Cross-Keys” and adjacent to the Atlantic City Expressway exit.
Carmax is America’s largest used car seller and a Fortune 500 company, and work started earlier this year on their new location. In it’s last fiscal year ending in February, Carmax sold 500,000 vehicles nationally!
According to published reports, Carmax closed on the Winslow property in January of this year, and on March 11th. 2014 the developer started clearing land.
This is a large 20 acre property. Carmax knows how to sell cars. Lots of cars and it requires a lot of space for parking them, as well as space for drainage. The typical sales center building is over 50,000 sq ft (although I am not sure of the Winslow size), but it is known that there will be an additional 30,000 Sq ft for additional retail.
A 6-9 month construction schedule was stated which could put the opening in 2014.
