Cumberland County Transportation
Cumberland County is easily accessible by highway using such major routes as the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, Routes 55 and 322, and I-295. Though it took more than 20 years to complete the entire 40 mile stretch, the construction of Route 55 has opened the world of commerce and expanded leisure activities to businesses and residents of Cumberland County. Route 55 has simplified access to Philadelphia, reducing the drive by at least a half-hour, and acts as a feeder to Route 295, the New Jersey Turnpike and Delaware. In short, it is Cumberland County's gateway to the world. Driving the speed limit of 65 miles per hour, it takes less than 40 minutes to drive from the Landis Avenue ramp in Vineland to Broad Street in Philadelphia.
Built during World War II, the Millville Army Air Field was turned over to the City of Millville in 1947. Millville Airport has been designated as an Urban Enterprise Zone and enjoys Foreign Trade Zone status. The airport is one of the sites of major employment for the city of Millville and Cumberland County. Employing between 1,300 and 1,400 people, the airport and businesses located adjacent to it generate over $30 million in combined payrolls annually. Funding for over $13 million in major improvements to the airport was provided by the Federal Aviation Administration and New Jersey Department of Transportation. The Millville Army Air Field Museum, located on the airport grounds, commemorates "America's first Defense Airport." The New Jersey Motorsports Park is adjacent to the airport.
