Overview

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.
