The Tremley Point Connector Road's role in the Liberty Corridor provides direct access between the New Jersey Turnpike and Tremley Point, a strategic site of approximately 400 acres of brownfields in southeastern Union County near Port Newark and Port Elizabeth.

Related to economic development, the Tremley Point Connector Road:

  • facilitates development of more than six million square feet of industrial space and approximately 2,000 new jobs.

Innovative aspects of the Tremley Point Connector Road are that the project:

  • supports the redevelopment of brownfields.
  • encourages the potential development of Tremley Point as a multimodal freight village that also involves rail, barging and value-added warehouses and distribution centers.

$92 million

Funding partnerships:
The Liberty Corridor will contribute $10 million or 12% of the funding for the Connector Road, and the New Jersey Turnpike Authority will provide the remaining $82 million.
