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.

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
