Garden State Parkway is expected to open in March 2019 with a new entrance.
The highway project will include a new interchange at I-80 and the eastbound portion of Garden State, as well as the westbound portion.
The $3 million project includes the construction of a pedestrian bridge over Interstate 80, the interchange of Garden state Parkway and the state park road, and a new crossing of I-95.
Construction of the project is expected for a spring 2019 opening.
The project is part of a larger $5 billion transportation plan to expand access to the state’s growing population.
