Have you seen any of the GREAT Arcadia Publishing books on the turnpikes and highways? We have a new one in the Gift Shop called “The New Jersey Turnpike” by Michael Lapolla and Thomas A. Suszka, which chronicles the history of the highway from 1949 through the present day. With vivid images, it follows the road’s progress from an ambitious vision, through construction, to opening, and into the future. Built as a utilitarian, four-lane, limited-access highway, the New Jersey Turnpike has evolved into the economic engine of New Jersey, the foundation of industrial prosperity and personal mobility. The highway traverses the entire state and is part of the Interstate 95 Corridor Coalition, which covers the East Coast from Maine to Florida. Today, more than two hundred forty million vehicles travel along the route, and many of those travelers stop at the turnpike’s twelve service areas.
