    Featuring three new ramps, Interchange 89 on the Garden State Parkway will open this week, providing improved access to major thoroughfares in Brick and Lakewood, officials announced. 

    According to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, the new ramps are as follows:

    Northbound Exit 89 A will provide access from the northbound Garden State Parkway to Route 70.
    Northbound Exit 89 B will provide access from the northbound Garden State Parkway to Cedar Bridge Road (CR 528)
    Southbound Exit 89 A will provide access from the southbound Garden State Parkway to Route 70 westbound.

    Southbound Exit 89 B, providing access to Route 70 eastbound from the southbound Garden State Parkway, and southbound Exit 89 C, providing access from the southbound Garden State Parkway to Cedar Bridge Road via Airport Road, opened last year.

    The construction of two service roads along the northbound and southbound lanes of the Parkway facilitate improved access to Cedar Bridge Road and Route 70, according to the Turnpike Authority. Drivers can now exit the Parkway onto the service roads and then utilize exits 89 A, B or C to access the local roads.

    In addition, northbound traffic will now be able to access Route 70 and Cedar Bridge Road, which only previously existed in the southbound lanes. Until last year, southbound drivers could access Route 70 at Exit 88. Access to Route 70 from both directions is now provided through Interchange 89.
