New Jersey's northern reaches presented some of the
most difficult technological challenges to the Turnpike's builders. Not
only would they have to navigate around existing pipelines, railroad tracks,
local streets, and utilities, they would have to lay the highway through
swampy marshland. Look at this and the two following New Jersey Turnpike
Authority official press releases and photographs to see how the Authority
portrayed the projects for potential newspaper and magazine articles.
Then, take a less posed look at construction through progress photos taken
by HNTB, one of the engineering firms contracted by the Turnpike Authority
to build the highway.
