North Avenue Corridor Improvement Project

Project description:
The North Avenue Corridor Project improves traffic conditions along one of the most critical transportation and commercial corridors in the State. One-third of the truck traffic to and from Port Elizabeth travels in this corridor, along with customers for IKEA, Jersey Gardens Mall, several hotels and other commercial developments.

Location:
Elizabeth in Union County

Transportation modes:
Trucks, Ships, Planes

The North Avenue Corridor's role in the Liberty Corridor:

  • separates truck traffic for the port and airport from passenger traffic for retail, hotel and other land uses in the area.
  • improves access to Port Newark, Port Elizabeth and Newark Liberty International Airport via Route 1&9 and the New Jersey Turnpike.

Related to economic development, the North Avenue Corridor:

  • supports private investment in maritime terminals at Port Newark and Port Elizabeth.
  • enables diverse land uses, including the port, warehouses, IKEA, Jersey Gardens, and hotels to coexist and thrive.

Innovative aspects of the North Avenue Corridor are that it:

  • separates access to support diverse land uses.
  • leverages available off-airport sites to support cargo activities at land-constricted Newark Liberty International Airport.

Total project cost:
$224 million

Funding partnerships:
Within the Liberty Corridor the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will fund $169 million and the New Jersey Turnpike Authority will fund $45 million. The Liberty Corridor will fund an additional $10 million.

Project lead:
Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
