Good News: Due to lower than expected bids, the Turnpike now has more money to spend on capital improvements. Yes it is due to the most rotten economy in a lifetime, but take what you can get.

Traffic is terrible during rush hour, and sometimes during non-rush hour times as well. God forbid you drive on Rt 4 and Rt 17 almost anytime of the day except very late evening and Sundays (Thanks to the blue laws in the county).

Even other highways like I-80, the Parkway and Turnpike is bad too.

They need to redesign the highways and increase the lanes to minimum of 4 lanes/direction.
I understand that it could still be traffic, but at least it will be less!

If you go further south and west in the nation with less population, you typically see 4 - 8 lanes/direction!
Plan better. You said in another thread how you have good time management skills. I choose not to drive during rush hour. You should manage your time better if you are concerned about traffic during rush hour.
