Officials from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will be on hand in Saddle Brook tomorrow to announce a multi-million dollar project funded through the Local Aid Program that will improve access from the Garden State Parkway to Route 80 eastbound while easing congestion on local roads.
The NJDOT, in conjunction with Bergen County, will explain improvements that are scheduled to be made at the intersections of Midland and New Pehle avenues, which include widening of both roads including a bridge over the Parkway, construction of a new jughandle and installation of new traffic signals.
A press conference is scheduled to be held in the parking lot of the Marriott Hotel located near the intersection of Midland and New Pehle avenues beginning at noon.
Currently motorists on the Garden State Parkway southbound must exit at Midland Avenue, make a left on to New Pehle Avenue and follow it to the entrance ramps to Route 80 eastbound. At peak hours, motorists experience considerable traffic congestion.
