To pay for the four-lane (2 each direction) version of the Turnpike constructed in the 1950s, yes. To pay for the Turnpike as it is today, no.

Why does a toll plaza canopy need to be replaced. Isn‘t it superfluous? In fact, haven’t they extracted enough tolls already to pay for the bloody turnpike?


This is EXACTLY why the public in general is right to be skeptical about "time limited" or temporary tolls: everywhere around the world, temporary tolls end up becoming permanent fixtures because, once the costs of a project are recouped, the politicians will find a way to spend the funds being collected from tolls.

Interchange 14B on Turnpike Ext. to close this weekend: Here’s how to deal with it

Updated 11:30 AM; Posted 11:30 AM
By Patrick Villanova | The Jersey Journal

Motorists who plan to use the Newark Bay-Hudson County Extension of the New Jersey Turnpike this weekend should expect traffic and detours around Interchange 14B, which will be closed Friday night through Monday morning.

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority has announced the interchange will remain closed from 9 p.m. Friday and reopen at 5 a.m. Monday. The closure will allow construction crews to replace the toll plaza canopy.
