PATCO expansion to be announced today

Inquirer staff writer Paul Nussbaum reports:

Gov. Corzine is expected to announce today the selection of a route for PATCO commuter rail expansion into Gloucester County.

A state panel has recommended the best route would be from Camden to Glassboro along an existing freight rail corridor. That route would do the most to reduce congestion, serve existing communities, and limit suburban sprawl.

The route would serve Glassboro, Pitman, Mantua, Wenonah, Woodbury, Deptford, West Deptford, Westville, Bellmawr, Brooklawn and Gloucester City.
