A portion of the new Garden State Parkway interchange 91 project opened to traffic on Wednesday, ushering in a new traffic pattern and the opening of two new entrances.
Entrances to the southbound lanes of the Parkway opened in two places: along the jug handle on Burnt Tavern Road that leads to a Lanes Mill Road, and one on Lanes Mill Road which can be accessed from there or Herborn Avenue.
Herborn Avenue, the road located behind the local Wawa store, has been completely repaved and is now a through street that leads either to Lanes Mill or the Parkway entrance – or, alternatively, a left onto Lanes Mill.
Brick police posted an image of the new traffic pattern today, which is shown below.
The total project includes:
- A new northbound entrance ramp from Burnt Tavern Road and Lanes Mill Road, with access to the park-and-ride lot on the east side of the Parkway.
- A second northbound entrance ramp for vehicles traveling eastbound on Burnt Tavern Road. This ramp will allow access from Burrsville Road. The single existing northbound ramp will be eliminated.
- New northbound exit and entrance ramps linking the Parkway and Burrsville Road.
- A new southbound entrance ramp for traffic heading west on Burnt Tavern Road.
- A second southbound entrance ramp linking Lanes Mill Road with the Parkway. Herborn Avenue will be extended south and east to Lanes Mill Road, where it will meet the new entrance ramp and a signaled intersection.
