EAST RUTHERFORD - With the grand opening of American Dream Meadowlands, formerly known as Xanadu, slated for next fall, some people fear a traffic nightmare.
It's being billed as the biggest retail and entertainment complex in the world, complete with an amusement park, water park, ski resort and mega-mall. More than 50 million people are expected to walk through its doors every year.
Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) says he'll work with state and local authorities to make sure roads are ready. He also says the new Meadowlands rail station will help.
Parking has been a problem at the Meadowlands in the past. The American Dream developers say they have that covered. There will be 12,000 parking spots around the complex, with an overflow lot of 25,000 spots and nearby shuttles to the site.
