  What Exit? NJ and its turnpike
 
Building it - What does it take to build a 118-mile long highway--in only two years? Travel back to the 1950s and find out here.
Driving it- Speed is only part of it. See how cars, road, traffic--and people--have all come to bear on the Turnpike driving experience.
Telling it- It's not just a road. Come along for the ride as former Turnpike employees tell what it's really like to work alongside the nation's busiest highway.
