Bypass named for Sweeney named region's best

Mullica Hill, NJ highway recognized by planning commission

A bi-partisan Gloucester County, NJ highway project named for the state's top elected Democrat has a new title: "Regional Transportation Program of the Year."

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission is hailing the $16 million, 1.5 mile Mullica Hill Bypass -- aka Stephen M. Sweeney Way, after the N.J. Senate president -- as "responsible government at its best."

The website PlanPhilly reports that the bypass, which re-routes through traffic on Route 322 away from the Mullica Hill shopping district in Harrison Township, has largely been welcomed by local businesses and residents.
