Portway is a series of
11 independent New
Jersey Department of
Transportation (NJDOT) projects
that will improve access to and between
the Newark-Elizabeth Air/Seaport Complex,
intermodal rail facilities, trucking
and warehousing/ transfer facilities
and the regional surface transportation
system. These facilities and their access
routes are the front door to global
and domestic commerce for New Jersey
and the greater metropolitan New York
region. The projects are located in
the counties of Union, Essex, Hudson
and Bergen and the municipalities of
Elizabeth, Newark, Bayonne, Jersey City,
Kearny, Secaucas, North Bergen, Little
Ferry and Ridgefield Park.
Portway projects will:
- Increase safety and support seamless intermodal and roadway connections.
- Relieve current high levels of congestion and meet growing future demands resulting from increased activity at port facilities, rail yards and distribution centers.
- Promote economic development, create jobs and improve the environment.
- Improve access to brownfields sites and facilitate their re-use as value-added processing centers and other goods movement logistics purposes.
