N.J. says good-bye to notorious Marlton Circle intersection

    CBS Philly reported earlier today that Marlton Circle, the well-known cause of traffic tie-ups and motorist headaches in South Jersey, has officially gone the way of the dinosaur.

    The New Jersey Department of Transportation has spent two years and $33 million re-engineering the intersection of Routes 70 and 73. Where once lay a complicated circle, now stands a simple overpass. 

    About 90,000 cars use the intersection every day, and some say the number will grow to 110,000 by 2030.
