Two New Parkway Entrances Open; Traffic Pattern Changes in Brick

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.

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.

    What about the other side of the Parkway? It’s still unchanged!

        Unfortunately big changes seem to be coming.

    In other parts of the state highway-projects are done overnight. Not here!

    The new intersection where Herborn intersects with Lanes Mill needs some work. Traffic turning left from Herborn onto Lanes Mill is very rough to pick up when you are merging onto Lanes Mill from the Parkway South exit. It has been a tough spot before but now with 2 lanes of new traffic coming from Herborn when they have a green light is something everyone is going to have to be aware of.

    Rube Goldberg would be proud of this highway engineering project.

      Hey J W, are you sure you meant Rube Goldberg? I didn’t know that they explained Rube Goldberg machines in comic books. Perhaps you were attempting to make an analogy to the Monkey and Banana problem. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_and_banana_problem

        We figured it out. You are a rascist monkey with no banana and no stick.

        If you head out to some other states, you’ll find the highway entrances and exits are a lot more simple, i.e. There’s one way on in each direction, usually a straight up on ramp with a third lane, and the same for off ramps. And people can make left turns to get on to the on ramps. They easy to build and maintain to and require very little special maneuvering like this.

    This whole thing is a mess. They didn’t make the road wide enough for what they wanted to do. Lanes seem to appear out of nowhere. What a waste of time and money.

    Good luck if you’re walking or on a bicycle .
    There should be a law that every new road project includes bike lanes or wide shoulders and sidewalks.it is impossible to walk to any store or shopping center in this town.

    Why was this changed from the original plans in 2013? The stretch of one way on Burnt Tavern is idiotic. They don’t need a left turn lane there as the jug handle is still there (that merges with the parkway south exiting traffic). Now I (and all other Ramtown people) need to go through 3 lights to make it across the bridge to head towards pt. pleasant or onto the parkway north bound.
