The have a very basic form of variable pricing.  EZ Pass off-peak for EZ Pass NJ account holders save roughly 20% or so.  Peak hours are 7-9am, 4-6pm and weekends.

The concept of more variable pricing was discussed in the past, but I think the Turnpike didn't want to push too much on the idea.

It would give accurate pricing signals that would guide expansion projects.

I don't know what you're talking about. They know the volumes. They know where things are congested.

Looking through the NJTA website, I noticed the exit 4-1 widening project is published in the capitol projects list:

I wonder why they are waiting until 2025 to start construction.

A little surprised that this is the first I'm hearing about a replacement of the Newark Bay Bridge, but I guess its still at least 5 years before they start that work, so maybe not.

It's been in their long term plans for a while. They want to make the NBHCE 3 lanes each direction between the mainline and 14C, plus add an aux lane eastbound to allow traffic exiting at 14A to have a place to queue up without spilling onto the main road. The bridge will need to be replaced to make that a reality.
