New Jersey Statutes, Title: 39, MOTOR VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC REGULATION
Chapter 4: Application of chapter
Section: 39:4-197.16: Findings, declarations relative to prohibiting certain trucks, truck-trailer combinations from using portions of Route 29
1. The Legislature finds that sections of State Highway Route 29, from its intersection with Interstate Route 95 to its northern terminus at State Highway Route 12, have sharp curves, minimal shoulders and limited sight distances. The Legislature further finds that the use of Route 29 between the stated points by heavy vehicles constitutes a hazard to the traveling public, as evidenced by serious accidents on that roadway, some including fatalities, and confirmed by extensive formal public comments, in recognition of which the Department of Transportation issued a traffic regulation order on November 15, 2000 temporarily prohibiting heavy trucks and truck-trailer combinations from using Route 29 between the stated points for through travel. The Legislature further finds that there are nearby alternative through routings which have significantly better overall roadway conditions and geometric designs.
The Legislature finds and declares that State Highway Route 29, from its intersection with Interstate 95 to its northern terminus at State Highway Route 12, is inappropriate for through travel by truck and truck-trailer combinations which exceed 26,000 pounds in weight, and that these vehicles should be permanently prohibited from using that roadway.
