Tremley Point Connector Road Project

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority (Authority) is planning the construction of a new four-lane, Predominantly pile-supported, approximately 1.1 mile long roadway/bridge, designated as the Tremley Point Connector Road (TPCR). The proposed TPCR will intersect with Industrial Highway in Carteret, Middlesex County, traverse the Rahway River and connect at Tremley Point Road in the City of Linden, Union County, New Jersey. The TPCR is intended to provide direct access between New Jersey Turnpike Interchange 12 via Industrial Highway and the Tremley Point area of Linden.

The TPCR will require Federal Permits from both the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The U.S. Coast Guard has been designated the lead Federal Agency for the TPCR. Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), 40 U.S. C. 1500-1508, the U.S. Coast Guard has required the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the TPCR. The draft EA was distributed for public review and comment on December 15, 2008. The U.S. Coast Guard has reviewed the comments received from this public notice and prepared responses. A full copy of the updated EA, dated April 2010, which includes comments and responses from the December 15, 2008 request can be accessed through the links below.
