GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — State officials will hold a public hearing Tuesday night at Richard Stockton College regarding a proposal to change how drivers get on and off the Garden State Parkway in the township.

The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Campus Center Theatre, Room CC-145. The New Jersey Turnpike Authority will start the official public hearing at 6 p.m. with a presentation, followed by a discussion with the audience.

At issue is a project that would place new highway ramps at milemarker 41, realign the existing access, and widen and add signals to Jimmie Leeds Road.

The authority proposes making the highway’s partial interchange at milemarker 44 into a full interchange at Pomona Road. The authority would build a southbound and a northbound exit ramp there, according to a public notice about the meeting.

Construction is expected to start this spring and take two years.

The goal, according to the public notice, is to “enhance traffic operations and safety, accommodate existing and future traffic demands, facilitate access to the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, and redirect and reduce traffic in and through the Atlantic City service area onto ramps.”

The authority will accept written comments until Feb. 4. Those should be sent to Donald Chappa, P.E., Project Engineer and Hearing Officer, New Jersey Turnpike Authority, P.O. Box 5042, Woodbridge, NJ 07095-5042.
