Turnpike, GSP To Upgrade Motorist Message Boards

GSP NJ TurnpikeThe New Jersey Turnpike Authority has launched a program to upgrade the overhead message boards that provide information to motorists about accidents, congestion and weather conditions. Earlier this month, the authority awarded a $25.6 million contract to a South Dakota firm to build up to 240 electronic variable message signs and 160 variable speed limit signs. The new message boards will be erected on both the New Jersey Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway. Brian Gorman, the authority’s director of technology, says the new signs are part of an overall trend to provide more detailed information to motorists in an easy-to-read format.

The project is scheduled for completion by 2014. It’s being funded by last year’s toll increase. AP

  1. How does spending for new signs justify toll hikes? especially in this economy!!!! no wonder why the state is in such bad financial shape! they are wasting OUR tax money on ridiculous new sings!
    I’d rather the same old signs and the same old toll prices and i don’t see why anyone would approve toll hikes just so we should have new flashy signs!
