New Jersey to spend million for new Parkway Exit 105 in Tinton Falls | State | NewJerseyNewsroom.com — Your State. Your News.
The New Jersey Turnpike Authority plans to spend $40 million to reconfigure the Garden State Parkway in Tinton Falls, adding new ramps from the southbound Parkway to Wayside Avenue and signage in both directions at Exit 105. The project also includes improving the intersection of Hope Road and Route 36, an area troubled by congestion and traffic delays.
Christie administration officials believe the new exit and road improvements will provide a boost to the redevelopment of Fort Monmouth, the U.S. Army base in Monmouth County set for closure on Sept. 15.
The $40 million is contained in the Turnpike Authority 10-year, $7 billion capital program.
“This project will benefit existing residents and businesses with improved access to the Parkway and provide capacity that will help the mixed-use Fort Monmouth redevelopment plan achieve its full potential,” state Transportation Commissioner James Simpson, the Turnpike Authority‘s chairman, said Thursday.
Construction on the new exit and Hope Road improvements could start in 2013
