The Double Decker Highway
I think there should be a feasability study to possibly implement double decker highways in New Jersey to see if this idea would work and what are the objections.
Another point is that I have noticed in my driving everyday, there is one spot on Route 78 about 500 to 800 feet east of the Clinton Ave exit for Newark,in the local lane, that has been sinking gradually every year since the highway was built. There has been no attempt to correct this problem.
From 1960-1965 I worked for a consulting engineering firm as a party chief and an assistant project manager on highway construction. I worked on the Route 23 Expansion in Newfoudland-Oak Ridge-Stockholm area, on the New Jersey Turpike Expansion from exit 12 to three miles past exit 16, and the New York Thruway 20 mile expansion in the Mohawk -Herkimer area.
If this problem on Route 78 is not corrected within the not to distant future, the local lane from Clinton Ave to Newark Airport may have to be closed to replace the structure, which should not take more than one to three weeks.
The aforementioned has been on my mind and I just felt I had to mention it.
