One of the Nation's Safest Highways
An ultra-modern, multi-lane express highway, the New Jersey Turnpike and its
extensions afford substantial savings in travel time with utmost safety.
Six wide travel lanesthree in each directionfrom
the George Washington Bridge interchange to Camden on the Turnpike; also on
the recently opened Newark Bay-Hudson County extension and the direct connection
with the Pennsylvania Turnpike, provide relaxed, comfortable driving for motorists
Lanes are clearly marked with wide reflectorized striping
and are posted on the outside with large reflectorized delineators for the full
length of the Turnpike for safe driving at night. A spacious median separates
opposing lanes of traffic for additional safety. Pavement is extra heavy duty
with high skid resistance. These and many other features account for the extraordinary
safety record of the New Jersey Turnpikea record which is far superior
to that on the nation's highways as a whole.
Twenty interchanges are strategically located on the Turnpike
for entrance and exit at principal east-west highways in New Jersey, and a direct
interchange connection with the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
The new Pennsylvania connection offers motorists and truckers
full express highway travel between New York and Chicago over Turnpikes in New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana
with important savings in time,
more comfortable driving and maximum safety.
The Newark Bay-Hudson County extension of the Turnpike affords
a direct highway between the Turnpike and Bayonne, Jersey City and the entrance
to the Holland Tunnel for motorists destined to, and coming from, lower Manhattan.
Once on the Turnpike and its extensions, travel is non-stopwithout
interruption for toll collecting purposes.
