RELEASE: April 18, 2011


Garden State Parkway policy that prohibits trucks north of Interchange 105 will remain in place

(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner James Simpson today announced that a longstanding policy that bans trucks from the Garden State Parkway north of Interchange 105 in Tinton Falls, Monmouth County will remain in place.

The announcement follows an erroneous press report that changes are being contemplated.

"There is no plan to change the current policy that prohibits trucks on the Parkway north of Interchange 105 in Monmouth County," Simpson said. "Our professional staff has indicated that significant engineering issues prevent such a change from even preliminary consideration."

The Garden State Parkway extends 172 miles from Montvale, Bergen County at the New York State border to Cape May in Cape May County. The toll road handles about 390 million toll transactions per year.
