Dueling Meadowlands Mall Traffic Studies Offered
Contrasting traffic and parking studies are being presented for a planned megamall and indoor amusement park in New Jersey’s Meadowlands.
The developer of the planned American Dream complex next to MetLife Stadium says the New York Giants and New York Jets are overstating the impact on game-day traffic.
A representative for developer Triple Five told the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority Wednesday that up to 25 percent of visitors would likely use mass transit.
The developer also said many potential visitors would stay away from the mall on game days.
In his statement to the sports authority, Giants co-owner John Mara ridiculed the study and said traffic and parking are now stretched to the limit and will get worse.
The teams have sued over the mall’s development.
