Farmland or not I think Sussex needs a lot of infrustructure such as roads, overpasses, and more!. We do not need to tap on farmlands to build more roads either. Elevated highways over existing ones will save the farmlands ie build and elevated highway over Rt 23. If you remember, Rt 23 becomes a single lane highway as it enters Sussex County.

No, actually I am the lead site project manager who oversees most of Jaus' government projects. I was kidding by the way, we have nothing to do with the project that Jaime mentioned. However, I was one of the SPMs who planned and developed many of todays troublesome highways in NJ such as the Route 73/70 projects in South Jersey to eliminate some of the most deadly intersections and circles. I also worked on many AC Expressway projects within the past 10 years. I agree, land is being taken over by development and roads. However, new roads are needed to keep up with population increases in this state.

I understand your position. Tell Jaime your kidding. Buy the way I'm not overly impressed with the changes made on Routes 73/70.

You might not be for a little bit longer. Thats understandable. We actually began night work for a little while to help with the morning traffic situation. Trust me, you will be impressed with the outcome of the project. Your tax money is being well spent.

"Your tax money is being well spent" makes you sound like a politician. Don't forget I'm from NJ, we don't TRUST our politicians. Our pockets are empty. I know it's not your fault but you struck a nerve. Sorry.

Hahaha, I dont blame you for not trusting politicians. I know Ill probably get myself into trouble for saying this, but when you have assholes like Norcross in office, its no suprise that people dont trust New Jersey politicians.

The plans for the removal of the circle look nice. MRS, dont apologize for stating the truth. Our pockets are empty and yet the taxes keep going up, local and state. We're heading for the same mess California has. One party rule is ruining the living standard in this state. We all wanna move out unless your poor and u can sponge off the state tit or rich and not care. Middle class New Jersey is slowing leaving.

I've got a few more years here and then I'm out. Jersey has been good to me, and my family, but I don't know how we can afford to retire here. It's a shame how things have gotten out of hand.

Trust me, Ive thought about moving for a while too. I am getting sicker and sicker of the budget wasting and the corruption that is going on in New Jersey. Look at the NJ Political Power Brokers list for NJ and you will see the most influential politician in office today is Norcross, behind the US Attorney of course.

http://www.politicsnj.com/PowerList2004.htm

Its a joke, Norcross keeps getting himself into trouble with all of these Political scandals he is involved with. Its like, politicians are only in the business to better their own lives and not the lives of the constituents and citizens of New Jersey who vote them into office. Its sickening.

Rob Andrews is New Jersey's only hope.

Do you think they will expand parts of Rt 40 to a 2 lane highway between Woodstown and AC?
