Tunnel-Happy Atlantic City
Atlantic City Mayor James Whelan has developed a plan for another
new highway tunnel, this one leading from the Atlantic City Expressway
into the main casino area. A $330 million tunnel into the newer Marina
section is under construction now. If the project gets into the state's
funding pipeline, expect a firestorm of protest from North Jersey,
where municipal and county officials are already suspicious of constant
"slippage" of needed infrastructure maintenance projects.
