Expressway 'stub ends' should be completed in order to get the most out of public dollars that have already been spent. This was significantly demonstrated through a systemwide analysis of roadways in the Morristown area after the opening of a four-mile segment of Interstate 287 in Morris County. Opening the missing segment has alleviated congestion on the north-south roadways--U.S.202, N.J.53, Whippany and Parsippany roads and on the east-west routes--N.J.10 and County 510. Total costs of vehicular travel in the Morristown area--including time, accident and operating costs, plus payment for land and construction costs--are now lower per unit of travel than before.
