GSP Interchange 41 & 44 Improvements

To address congestion, operational and safety issues, and local access limitations at Garden State Parkway Interchanges 41 (Jimmy Leeds Road) and 44 (Pomona Road), as well as to accommodate the planned widening of the Parkway, the New Jersey Transit Authority contracted with NV5 to provide preliminary and final design services including traffic, structural, alignment, and environmental studies and the preparation of contract plans and documents, right-of-way documents, environmental permitting, and construction support services.

The proposed improvements included: a new diamond interchange at Interchange 41; reconstruction of Interchange 44 to accommodate full access (existing configuration was limited “to and from” the north); widening of over 2 miles of GSP mainline to accommodate 3-12’ travel lanes (each direction), auxiliary lanes, and full shoulders; widening and signalization of local roads (Jimmy Leeds Road and Pomona Road) at the GSP access ramp intersections; access ramp improvements to the Atlantic City Service Area; construction of two mainline structures carrying the Parkway over Pomona Road; extensive retaining walls to mitigate ROW and environmental impacts; stormwater management (SWM) facilities including recharge swales, infiltration & SWM basins, inlets, outfalls, piping, etc.; and incidental improvements like highway lighting, 5-overhead sign structures, guiderail, signing, and striping.
