ADVISORY: Change announced in schedule for public hearings on capital plan and tolls

Mar 16 2020

The schedule of public hearings on the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s proposed toll adjustment and capital program has been changed.

The hearing that had been scheduled for Ramapo College on Thursday, March 19, 2020, at 7 p.m. has been canceled.

The hearings at the Turnpike Authority headquarters in Woodbridge and at Camden County College will be held as scheduled. The hearing in Woodbridge will be  held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Attendees will be asked to adhere as closely as possible to social distancing guidance. That hearing will also be live streamed. Details on how to watch will be posted on the Turnpike Authority website (www.njta.com). The presentation will be recorded and available for viewing after the completion of the hearing. The Camden County College hearing will proceed as scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, in the Dennis Flyer Memorial Theater, Lincoln Hall, Jefferson Drive, Sicklerville, New Jersey.   

In uncertain economic times, the Turnpike Authority does not want to delay consideration of a capital program expected to sustain tens of thousands of jobs in coming years. The hearing arrangements will allow that process to continue while protecting public health and without limiting public participation.

Because of these changes, the Turnpike Authority has extended the public comment period until 5 p.m. on April 3, 2020. Members of the public now have until that time to submit written comments about the proposal in order to have those comments become part of the hearing record. Comments can be sent by email to NJTAPublicComments@njta.com or by mail or courier to Executive Director, New Jersey Turnpike Authority, 1 Turnpike Plaza, P.O. Box 5042, Woodbridge, NJ 07095.
