THRUWAY AUTHORITY ANNOUNCES START OF $6.4 MILLION PAVEMENT IMPROVEMENT PROJECT ON GARDEN STATE PARKWAY CONNECTOR IN ROCKLAND COUNTY
Project Includes Repairs and Resurfacing
To Limit Traffic Impacts, All Work To Take Place Overnight
Project Scheduled to Be Completed in Fall 2022
The New York State Thruway Authority today announced the start of a $6.4 million pavement improvement project on the Garden State Parkway Connector in Rockland County. The work will cover more than two miles between New York State Thruway exit 14A (New Jersey - Garden State Parkway) in Ramapo to the northern border of the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey.
“These improvements on a critical link between New York and New Jersey will enhance safety and dependability,” Thruway Authority Executive Director Matthew J. Driscoll said. “We continue to reinvest our toll revenue in projects that ensure that we have a transportation system that meets the needs of motorists across the region.”
The project includes rebuilding the pavement by performing mill and inlay operations to a three-inch depth from milepost 0 to milepost 2.4 northbound and southbound, adding new reflective line striping, signs and guiderail. All of the work will take place overnight and is expected to be completed by late Fall 2022.
Crisdel Group, Inc. is the project contractor following a competitive bidding process.
Motorists may encounter lane closures on the highway along with traffic shifts and stoppages while construction is underway. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Motorists are urged to be alert and follow the posted work zone speed limits and are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.
