Rt. 3 Super Bowl Construction

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

The Super Bowl is coming to New Jersey in 2014 and many people are already anticipating the mayhem Route 3 is going to cause when trying to get to the game.

It’s no secret that Route 3 is already a hard road to drive on, however, Route 3 has proposed massive road improvement and bridge building projects which have already started and been going on for a couple of years now.

Now Route 3 East, the main gateway to MetLife Stadium, recently started new construction that will not be finished in time for the Super Bowl.

Most New Jersey drivers would love to go to the Super Bowl, but admit that they’ll most likely stay at home to avoid the havoc Route 3 will be on that day. Cindy Espinel, a Route 3 driver said “I feel like it’s going to be the same no matter what.”

The construction project, which has been going on for a couple years now, was first approved financially in 2010. Meanwhile, the planning and surveys that come along with the pre-process began back in 2001. So, just how long will it be before all this construction begins to show improvements?

Some doubt that there will be any improvements to begin with. Cynthia Caruso, another Route 3 driver voiced her concern as well. “It’s either Route 3 or Route 46 that- there’s traffic over there there’s traffic over here, there’s construction over there, there’s construction over here. It’s either way.” She said.

As of now, Route 3 continues to be an anxiety/blood pressure enhancer, so the best thing to do is listen to Sean Ortiz, who knows the worst times to be on Route 3. “It definitely depends on what hour. If you’re here between 3 and 4 you’re going to get stuck in traffic.” He said.

They hope to have the Route 3 project done by the summer of 2014 with the final cost being $150 Million in state money.
