New exit ramps to major roads in Brick from both directions of the Garden State Parkway open this week.
Exit 89 will provide access to Route 70 and Cedar Bridge Avenue directly from the highway, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority announced.
The new ramps at exit 89 include:
- Northbound Exit 89 A – Access from the northbound Garden State Parkway to Route 70.
- Northbound Exit 89 B – Access from the northbound Garden State Parkway to Cedar Bridge Road (County Route 528).
- Southbound Exit 89 A – Access from the southbound Garden State Parkway to Route 70 westbound.
The improved access to Cedar Bridge Road and Route 70 involved the construction of two service roads along the northbound and southbound lanes of the Parkway, the authority said in its announcement. Drivers now exit the Parkway onto the service roads and then use exits 89 A, B or C to access the local roads.
The reconfigured interchange provides exits to Route 70 and Cedar Bridge Road from the northbound Parkway that did not exist before. Southbound Parkway drivers used to be able to access Route 70 at Exit 88, but that exit designation was retired last year. Access to Route 70 from both directions is now provided through interchange 89.
Two other new ramps at Interchange 89 opened last year: Southbound Exit 89 B provides access to Route 70 eastbound from the southbound Garden State Parkway, and southbound Exit 89 C provides access from the southbound Garden State Parkway to Cedar Bridge Road via Airport Road.
