A fatal accident in Moorestown is causing heavy delays on Route 38 at rush hour, near the stretch of highway where the female driver died around 1:30 p.m., police said. In the single-vehicle accident, a woman driving alone and heading eastbound on Route 38 between Fellowship Road and Moorestown-Mount Laurel Road veered off the road and struck a pole and several signs before striking a second pole and coming to a stop. When Moorestown police arrived minutes later, Lt. Lee Lieber said, the driver was dead at the scene.

Winter's prolonged toll included overcrowded PATCO trips during rush hour Monday morning - so much so that some travelers could not board the trains. The packed trains became a reality after 7:30 a.m., when several cars' electric motors failed, forcing cancellation of some trips, according to the Delaware River Port Authority. DRPA spokesman Timothy Ireland attributed the motor problems to accumulated snow in the engines, which can cause short circuits when it melts and freezes. Ireland said the circumstances were not unusual given the weather.

Blame it on the rain - from Aug. 14. A previously rained-out Phillies game rescheduled for 1:05 p.m. today at Citizens Bank Park could cause traffic havoc during the evening rush hour because it could coincide with - you guessed it - more rain. Phillies fans should be leaving the park some time after 4 p.m. The release of about 43,000 fans into the traffic stream is normally enough to impact the commute along I-95, the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) and the Walt Whitman and Ben Franklin bridges.

If the Blue Route seems packed now, just imagine what it will be like in 2040, when the region's population has grown by 600,000 people, an 11.5 percent bump. More cars. More Shore traffic on Friday nights in summer. More logjams when the Phillies are in town. But relief may be on the way. Regional planners are floating a plan to convert the shoulders of I-476 during rush hour, easing traffic flow during the busiest times without spending money to widen the road. During peak hours in the morning and afternoon, vehicles would be allowed to drive on the shoulder, creating a bonus lane for the estimated 90,000 drivers that use the road each day. The plan was mentioned in a recent report on managing growth from the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.

A truck carrying mail this morning lost its load on Route 611 in Warrington, Bucks County. The accident at Rout 611 and Bristol Road occurred shortly after 7 a.m. and during the start of rush hour, hampering local traffic. Only one lane was getting by as crews at the scene worked to remove the truck and gather the mail. Hundreds of pieces of the multi-colored envelopes and other mail scattered across several lanes.

Supervisors probably will give Lockheed Martin the green light for its proposed development along Route 332 on one condition: It agrees on a traffic-impact fee with the township. The township Planning Commission voted unanimously Tuesday night to recommend approval for both Lockheed Martin and Holy Family College to build on 52 acres on the bypass near Interstate 95. The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to hear the proposals at its Wednesday meeting. "Really, the only remaining issue here is this discrepancy in the traffic-impact fee," said Supervisor Steve Sanderlin.

Traffic on the Schuylkill Expressway was heavier yesterday because about 10 percent of the motorists who had abandoned the roadway Wednesday, the first day of roadway construction, ventured back to the highway. But the additional drivers did not add substantially to delays on the expressway, and officials from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said they continued to be pleased with, although wary of, developing traffic patterns. "We can't give a trend yet, because the traffic is still shifting," said PennDOT spokewoman Lois Morasco.

PATCO officials have started a "lessons learned" session on Monday afternoons to figure out how to improve service on the troubled commuter line between South Jersey and Center City. They had plenty to work with Monday. During both the morning and evening rush-hours, trains were disabled on the lone working track on the Ben Franklin Bridge, forcing evacuation of the trains and causing significant delays on a line already slowed by construction. The morning breakdown was over the Delaware River, while the evening failure was on the approach to the bridge on the Philadelphia side.
