"A useful highway"
I live on one side of Rt. 440 and cross it every week to get to work. This really is one of the most useful highways I've ever visited in my life. Besides being a good highway for cars to use to get places, it also supports automboiles of all kinds like motorcycles, trucks, vans, and even a bus. The bus, the 440 Shopper, allows pedestrians and other vehicularly challenged to access the many shopping opportunities available on the highway. Hudson Mall, K-Mart, Pathmark, Raymour and Flanigan, Home Depot, Old Navy, IHOP, etc., make this highway a valid option when deciding where our next shopping trip will be, making it unlike other barren highways with the occasional restaurant or gas station every few miles. Rt. 440 definitely serves the community. However, it would be nicer if it were cleaner and even more pedestrian-accessible, considering the number of stores located there.
