Port Street Corridor Improvement

New Jersey
In Progress

This corridor provides access to one of the Port Authority’s marine facilities that makes up the largest and busiest cargo gateway on the East Coast.

This project will feature a more efficient roadway configuration with a wider turning radius, allowing for safer trucking operations to and from the Port Newark complex. The improvements will additionally offer truck drivers significant time savings while they navigate the complex, enhancing efficiency and reliability across the supply chain as well as significantly reducing carbon emissions each year.

Conti has broken ground on this contract which consists generally of demolition and replacement of Corbin Street Ramp over the New Jersey Turnpike and Conrail railroad tracks including foundation piles; demolition of a portion of the Port Street Bridge extension; demolition, construction, reconstruction or rehabilitation of roadways including removals, surcharge placement, pavement markings, grading, paving, utilities, traffic signals, signs, guiderail and barrier, and other site features; removal and construction of rail features including signals, and precast concrete grade crossings; upgrade and replacement of intelligent transportation system; digital message sign structure; construction of outfall structure; lighting and related electrical work; landscape features including trees and seeding; disposal of contaminated non-hazardous excess material and related work at the Port Street Corridor area of Port Newark and the vicinity thereof in Newark, New Jersey.

The team will safely manage construction activities while avoiding any potential impact to current operations.
