Map of NJ Turnpike

The Details

The NJ Turnpike is an arched suspension bridge that crosses the Delaware River and connects the two cities of Burlington, New Jersey, and Bristol, Pennsylvania by extension. It is part of the Interstate 95 interstate highway. Tolls are collected using an electronic system, and therefore there are almost no traffic jams on the bridge even during rush hour.

It is also worth noting that the New Jersey Turnpike is New Jersey’s controlled access highway system. The 117-mile southern terminus is at an interchange with Interstate 295 (I-295), U.S. Route 40 (US 40), US 130, and Route 49 near the borders of Pennsville Township and Carnis Point in Salem.

The northern terminus is located at the interchange of I-80 and US 46 in Ridgefield Park, Bergen County.

How it was created

In 1954, the New Jersey Turnpike bridge project began to be implemented. The bridge was built by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) and the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA). PTC completed the first phase of construction, namely the erection of an expander between Valley Forge and Bristol Township in 1955.

The NJTA built a 118-mile highway between Penns Grove and Ridgefield Park around 1952. To prevent traffic jams on the bridge, PTC has implemented an electronic cashless toll system E-ZPass, and TOLL BY PLATE. The toll is automatically charged when crossing the highway in the direction of Pennsylvania.

The NJTA has proposed the construction of an additional Alfred E. Driscoll expressway as part of a highway expansion. But closer to December 1973, local authorities completely abandoned the idea of ​​​​expansion. The rights to drive were sold out in 1979, and the project was put on hold indefinitely.

What now?

Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the New Jersey Turnpike has suspended fundraising. Drivers who do not have E-ZPass transponders had to take pictures of their car license plates at paid sites and send invoices by e-mail. In 2020, the electronic collection was renewed.
