New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) | Interchange 14A Improvement Plan | Bayonne & Jersey City, NJ

After many years of careful planning and preparation, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s Interchange 14A Improvement project in Bayonne and Jersey City finally began in March of 2015.

The project, completed in 2018, made vital improvements to Interchange 14A. These improvements reduce delays on the Newark Bay-Hudson County Extension, relieve congestion on city streets, create jobs, improve air quality, and encourage regional economic development. Funded by toll dollars, the project was designed to minimize disruptions in the community and to maximize community outreach. The project included expanding the toll plaza from 11 to 13 lanes and making several ramp and roadway improvements to alleviate congestion in the area.

Stokes Creative Group, Inc. (Stokes) provided extensive public outreach support throughout the duration of the project, which included managing the project website, a stakeholder database, communication tracking, toll-free public hotline, graphic design, and photography.

The Interchange 14A Improvement project received a “Distinguished Engineering Award” from the New Jersey Alliance For Action in 2017 and a “Leading Infrastructure Project” Award in 2018.
