New Electronic Signs For GSP, N.J. Turnpike To Cost $32M

Officials have agreed to spend nearly $32 million to replace signs that alert motorists to traffic problems on the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. The turnpike’s red neon signs date to the 1950s and the parkway’s dot matrix signs were installed in the 1990s. Officials say both are limited in the amount of information they can display.

Turnpike Authority assistant chief engineer Rob Fischer tells the Asbury Park Press the new signs will have the capability to provide more information with improved color graphics. Fisher says they can help a driver decide to take an alternate route if there’s an accident.

Similar signs are on the parkway north, just before the Asbury Park toll plaza and on the turnpike south near Interchange 12. Star Ledger.

  1. When the parkway was built it was said that the tolls would be removed once the parkway was paid for. Here we are 60 years later and still paying tolls. Why??? Because they keep doing more (like changing to signs no one can read at 65 MPH anyhow) by borrowing the money so the parkway will NEVER be paid off. And don’t forget – it’s a dumping ground for political hacks who need a job.
