State Says No to Parkway Interchange on Route 30 in Galloway, Offers Alternatives; Mayor Purdy Speaks Out

Galloway Mayor Don Purdy
Have you ever heard of the expression, "if you build it, they will come?" or "what came first, the chicken or the egg?" Same could fundamentally hold true here as a result of a recent Feasibility Study conducted by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority regarding improvements to the Garden State Parkway Interchange Exit 40. 

The partial interchange is located on the White Horse Pike, approximately one-mile south of the Atlantic City Service Area in Galloway Township.

In a letter dated April 17, 2014, sent to Galloway Township Mayor Don Purdy and Members of Galloway Council from Senator Christopher Connors, the study as released states, "The New Jersey Turnpike Authority has completed a study to evaluate the need for, and feasibility of completing all missing movements at Interchange 40 on the Garden State Parkway in Galloway Township, New Jersey. Based on the results of the traffic projections and impact analysis performed for each of the alternatives studied, construction of the new ramps to the missing movements at Interchange 40 is not considered critical."
