This 1960 photo shows the Garden State Parkway at EXIT 136 (Centennial Avenue) in Cranford.
Note how the stone-arch overpass design borrows from the New York parkways designed by Robert Moses.
With only 18 miles of parkway completed by 1950, financing the remainder of the parkway had become difficult, but officials soon came up with another plan modeled on the successful New Jersey Turnpike.
On April 14, 1952, the State Legislature enacted legislation to create the New Jersey Highway Authority, which was to construct, operate and maintain a self-sufficient toll parkway from Paramus to Cape May.
Earthen berms and concrete retaining walls form the walls of the cut. (Through Bloomfield and Cranford, the parkway itself is carried above the towns.) South of Cranford, the rolling terrain and wooded buffers return.
Following the success established by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, the New Jersey Highway Authority adopted the power to issue bonds to finance construction of the Garden State Parkway.
Wide grass and wooden medians indigenous to the Northeast separate the two roadways.
From Paramus south to Cranford, the dual roadways are mostly located in a cut, with intersecting roadways and pedestrian walkways carried over the parkway cut.
Throughout the length of the Parkway, steep grades and vertical curves have been eliminated; most grades have a maximum of three percent.
The horizontal alignment consists of gentle curves and straight-aways are minimized.
It follows a gradually curving route through densely populated urban and suburban areas.
