For Immediate Release
Fairfax, VA | 01.03.2020

The $286-million project expected to meet future traffic demands while minimizing environmental impacts.

The New Jersey Turnpike Interchange 14A Improvements project recently won a best project award from Engineering News-Record New York magazine. Dewberry provided engineering services as a subconsultant to Gannett Fleming, Inc.

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s Interchange 14A connects to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s port commerce area, Route 440, and Port Jersey Boulevard. It serves more than 50,000 vehicles daily, including 6,000 trucks, and congested roadway conditions are expected to worsen in the future.

The $286-million improvement project offers improved access to state routes, doubled capacity on a main connector bridge, and enhanced traffic flow. With these improvements, the interchange is expected to meet future traffic demands through the year 2035 while minimizing environmental impacts.

Dewberry provided highway design, maintenance and protection of traffic, lighting design, temporary lane control system design, bridge widening, retaining wall design, drainage design, pavement design, hazardous waste screening and limited site investigation, wetland delineation, and post-design services.  

“These improvements were critical to reducing the congested roads and bridges in this commerce-heavy area and planning for the continuing growth of the region,” says Dewberry Senior Vice President Ali Vaezi, PE. “We’re honored to be part of this talented project team that is making a difference in our community.”
