    Funny they say in Maine that you can't get there from here...
    Every time I go to that area of NJ I erase it from memory convinced I'll never have to go thru that again....derp....:eek:
    Fri afternoon due at Elm Street and then Fayette. My garmin is tying Christmas bows trying to get me there....
    Anybody familiar with the area want to give suggestions?

    I was in that area not too long ago.....there are plenty of restrictions.......well come to think of it I was Oversize...... but 440 to NJ 35 to New Brunswick ave....

    Edit to add..... my restrictions were related to me being oversized and were from the county.....

    I feel your pain, I worked underneath the Parkway bridge in Keasbey [just east of Perth Amboy] and every direction to approach our location required a different set of instructions including some that were a paragraph long only to refer you to then follow another of the instructions.....

    I’ve been there twice. Both times to turn around, by UPS. The second and last time I totaled my Truck merging onto 440, in a 25 mph construction zone. It’s was 3:00 am. No one in sight. Guy came out of nowhere, flying around the curve. Only wreck I’ve ever had. Not a fan of Perth Amboy. Lol.

    2 seafood places. Guess my garmin girl is right. She says 95S to GS Pkwy to Smith st (keasbey) rt 440 connector....
    Sometimes she's neurotic and so I wanted to check.
    There's a pilot in KC that she is convinced there's no thru route left under the highway at the end of the offramp lol. She tells me to down an exit and come back on the other side...silly girl.

    I may be wrong but no trucks are allowed on that part of GS parkway. I thought it was no trucks on parkway north of exit 105
