RED BANK, NJ – The $10.89 million contract awarded to Earle Asphalt by the NJ Turnpike Authority in July of 2018 is progressing slowly but surely.
Located at the confluence of Route 520 (Newman Springs Road) and Half Mile Road, the project is to reconfigure the chaos and confusion that commuters face on a daily basis.
What's the Plan?
- On Newman Springs Road, a new northbound entrance ramp is being created
- All traffic at Half-Mile Road intersection will go straight through the light
- On Newman Springs Road, two lanes and a new traffic signal installed for traffic exiting the parkway to turn left onto Newman-Springs Road
- An additional lane is being added to eastbound Newman-Springs Road

“The project is about 40 percent complete with the steel for the new bridge over Newman Springs Road to the northbound Parkway expected be in place by mid-September. The new entrance ramp from eastbound Newman Springs Road to the northbound Parkway should be open by winter,” said Tom Feeney, Turnpike Authority spokesman.
