Cranes are something that NJ has a lot of these days – especially on the New Jersey Turnpike which is in a construction phase, called the Widening Program. This project will widen the turnpike to 12 lanes between Interchange 6 in Mansfield Township, Burlington County and Interchange 9 in East Brunswick Township, Middlesex County. Construction started in 2009 with completion set for late 2014.
These are very large cranes and it’s difficult to get a good shot from a car moving at 65 mph.There’s wasn’t much construction in evidence last Friday afternoon as we passed the construction sites.
Perhaps, workers had an early quitting day for the Labor Day weekend. We didn’t take this roadway on our way back to VA, so there are no photos of work in progress.
If you want to see more large cranes, drop in to Artic View where blogger friend, Elaine, has been posting photos of Sandhill Cranes.
