CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — South Jersey will deal with traffic and transit challenges on the weekend of the Papal visit. The extent of those challenges has been laid out by New Jersey officials.
Major roads approaching the Ben Franklin Bridge will be closed that weekend, like the Admiral Wilson Boulevard West at Baird Boulevard and 676 North at Morgan Boulevard.READ MORE: 1 Teen Killed, 2 Others Injured In North Philadelphia Triple Shooting

“There are not enough parking spaces for busses nor cars, and so people are going to have to plan on walking a fairly decent distance.”
That’s even if you take mass transit into Camden, which will stop at the Rand Transportation Center.MORE NEWS: 12-Year-Old Girl Killed, 4 Other Children Injured After Minivan Overturns On I-95 North In Tinicum Township
The RiverLINE will only make 7 stops from Trenton. The Atlantic City rail line will get you directly into 30th street in Philadelphia non-stop. But you’ll need special tickets no matter how you go and they go on sale this weekend online and those tickets are limited.
