This $10 Million project involved the reconstruction of GSP Interchange 105 at GSP access ramps/NJ Route 36/Hope Road intersection. Improvements consisted of new ramps in the northeast and southeast quadrants of the intersection to accommodate left-turn movements, relocation of the existing GSP northbound exit ramp to form a new signalized intersection, widening of approaches to Hope Road, NJ Rt. 36 and GSP access ramps to accommodate auxiliary lanes, and the construction of three (3) traffic signals. The project further included one (1) new overhead sign structure, drainage improvements, installation of roadway rumble strips, signing, striping, lighting and utility work.
Interchange 105 Wayside Connection
The $11 Million Wayside Connection Project involved construction of a new exit ramp from the southbound local roadway to Wayside Road, construction of a new southbound ramp structure over Pine Brook Road, widening of the northbound and southbound GSP Local Roadways to accommodate additional auxiliary lanes, construction of a retaining wall, and widening and signalization of the new southbound exit ramp/Wayside Road and Wayside Road/Pine Brook Road intersections. The project also consisted of the construction of eight (8) overhead sign structures, milling, paving, rumble strip installation, drainage, signing, striping, lighting and utility work.
Boswell performed project management and inspection services for each of these multi-million dollar projects under a single contract. Each phase required strict adherence to NJTA Standards and Specifications and involved coordination with multiple entities including the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) Engineering Division, New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), the County of Monmouth, Township of Tinton Falls, Borough of Eatontown and several utility companies.
