To my knowledge the SJTA doesn't have any assets in the area. Does SJTA stand for something else here? There is a corresponding "SJTA Ends" sign in the other direction. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9474846,-75.1167168,3a,44.2y,323.63h,79t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sa-txJ-o_rYEuM0BPzvqDwg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
And speaking of that area, who is this oddly placed "Welcome to New Jersey" sign meant to be for?

That's an interesting question. Per the SLDs, SJTA does have some jurisdiction over Rt 30, but only its last mile or so in Atlantic City. Aside from the shared bit with 676 that's DRPA jurisdiction, NJDOT says that the rest of the roadway is under their jurisdiction. Very curious.

So a bit of research brought me to at least some generic info on it.

In 2020 a resolution was passed for 'maintenance' services on 676 and 30.  It doesn't describe the maintenance that will be performed, although by its reading it does seem to stay away from construction and other high-dollar costs.  But considering these routes "feeder roads" is probably a bit of a stretch, considering the distance between their maintenance jurisdiction and the actual Expresssway.  Google research seems to show that this didn't generate any media attention.  I have a guy I'll reach out to, in case he may be interested in trying to do a little research on it.


--- Quote ---RESOLUTION 2020-127 OF THE SOUTH JERSEY TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY AUTHORIZING AN AGREEMENT WITH NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION REGARDING THE COMPLETION OF MAINTENANCE SERVICES ON ROUTE 30 (MILE POST 0.92 TO MILE POST 4.20) AND INTERSTATE 676 (MILE POST 0.00 TO 3.50)

Pursuant to Section 7(p) of the Act, the Authority has the power to acquire, construct, maintain or operate any public highway connecting with any one or more projects which in the opinion of the Authority will increase the use of a project or projects, to take over for construction, maintenance or operation any existing public highway as a feeder road and to realign any existing public highway and build additional sections of road over new alignment in connection with that existing public highway. The New Jersey Department of Transportation (“NJDOT”), under the powers vested in the law, N.J.S.A. 27:1A-5 and N.J.S.A. 27:7-21, and the Authority, pursuant to its powers under the Act, have mutual interest in entering into an agreement for the initiation and completion of maintenance services (the “Agreement”) on Route 30 (“Rt. 30”) (Mile Post 0.92 to 4.20) and Interstate 676 (“I-676”) (Mile Post 0.00 to 3.50). Pursuant to the Agreement, NJDOT will continue to perform certain maintenance activities on Rt. 30 and I-676, but the Authority will begin to perform maintenance services on Rt. 30 and I-676. The Director of Operations believes it to be in the best interest of the Authority and recommends entering into a contract with NJDOT for the Authority to initiate and complete maintenance services on Rt. 30 and I-676.

Since I was going across the bridge yesterday, I was on the lookout for these markers. Along with the signs on the US 30 MPs, there's this Start sign on I-676 South just after the 676/30 split.

And an End sign just before the 676/76 merge.

Anytime a toll is removed for cyber technology. It’s old news.  Expect all toll roads to be this way.

Makes me glad I almost never have to drive to the city, between the ever increasing PANYNJ tolls and all the NY agencies practicing transponder discrimination.

plain:
PANYNJ & MTA are the Mob :-D Nothing new.
