PREIT Seeks Left Turn Into Mall from Route 38

The Moorestown Mall owner is expected to make a presentation at tonight's meeting, among other business.

Township council meets at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the IT room at Moorestown High School. Among the highlights of the meeting is a presentation from Moorestown Mall owner PREIT. 

Township manager Scott Carew said PREIT would like to install a left turn lane into the mall from Route 38 West. PREIT needs approval from the state Department of Transportation, he explained, and is seeking council's endorsement to aid in receiving the approval. 

Carew said he did not know where PREIT wanted to add the left turn. A call to PREIT Friday afternoon was not immediately returned.

Council will also discuss filling the township's vacant information technology position, as well as issue proclamations for Kindness Week and Art Month.

Rather than a new turn off 38, A suggestion may be that the mall have the traffic from the east gate side go straight once you cross over Nixon drive near boscovs. Right now you must make a left or right turn. Improve that entrance to the mall property.

If you are a Moorestown resident, it boggles my mind why you would NOT want this turn lane. Medians are known to kill business. This will dramatically help this mall, which we all know needs as much help as possible.

The Nixon drive jughandle used to back up around the holidays with cars lined up on the shoulder. That was before anything was behind the mall. A left turn into Sears with a long run up can only help the mall...and when timed right won't much impact anything on 38. When half of the stores are empty or junk, Preit claims the value is less in their tax appeal and the ratables in town go down. That hurts everyone....so good stores and traffic are good.

Look, didn't someone say about our stretch of rt 38 still "has a rural feel" and the medians are good for the town. So don't the "professionals" in town know best? Those comments made at the assembly Monday night don't seem it good for the town or safety or traffic issues only is big negative , right? Is there any further discussion about this issue?

Townie , as an observation didn't someone say this at the assembly Monday night? The professionals in town seem to feel there are safety issues here for another left turn light on rt 38 at the mall. Plus, didn't someone say there may not be enough stacking lane room, only 300ft, Talk about cars backed up in the "fast lane". Sound alike more congestion and potential accidents.
