The original terminus of the Turnpike was at the US 46 interchange (current exit 68), though the modern Turnpike continues along a long curved urban expressway that loops slightly southward to meet the George Washington Bridge approaches. 46 came under Turnpike Authority jurisdiction in 1992, as NJDOT sold the road in order to balance the state budget.
The Turnpike officially ends at US 9W (exit 72), with the final approaches to the George Washington Bridge along I-95 maintained by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. It connects Newark with Lower Manhattan via the Holland Tunnel in Jersey City and intersects the mainline near Newark Liberty International Airport. It was formerly designated as Route 700P, but is currently designated I-95 in anticipation of the completion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike/Interstate 95 Interchange Project in 2018. This section of the road travels past the interchange for I-80 and through a cut in the Hudson Palisades at GWB Plaza.
It is designated Route 700, an unsigned route, from exit 1 (Delaware Memorial Bridge) to exit 6, and as I-95 from exit 6 (Mansfield Township) to exit 18 (Secaucus/Carlstadt).
The number of lanes ranges from 4 lanes south of exit 4 (Mount Laurel Township), 6 lanes between exit 4 and exit 6 (Mansfield Township), 12 lanes between exit 6 and exit 11 (Woodbridge Township), and 14 lanes between exit 11 and exit 14 (Newark).
A 6-mile (10 km) long six-lane highway, it not only connects the Pennsylvania Turnpike with the mainline, but also has an exit, designated as 6A, to U. A number of bridges are included as part of the New Jersey Turnpike.
None of these state highway designations have ever been signed.
The toll fee depends on the distance traveled between entrance and exit, and longer distances result in higher tolls.
As of 2013, the automobile toll from exit 1 to exit 18 is .85.
