Herbertsville Vehicle Inspection Facility

Owner: New Jersey Turnpike Authority
Location: Wall Township, N.J.

Gannett Fleming Architects, Inc. provided conceptualization, programming, planning, final design, and postdesign services for the Herbertsville bus and truck inspection facility. The new facility’s design is based on the needs of its owner, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA), and of those end-users performing the vehicle inspections, the New Jersey State Police (NJSP). The design team gathered ideas by examining other facilities around the state, identifying their strengths and limitations, and soliciting input from facility operators.

The facility, which opened in July 2011, is a one-story, 10,000-square-foot building that contains four inspection bays with full-sized inspection pits for undercarriage inspections; a waiting room and restrooms to accommodate 100 passengers and drivers; and a control center, office areas, and locker facilities for the NJSP. It is the first inspection facility in the United States to be sited, constructed, and operated on a toll road.

This facility received a Distinguished Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of New Jersey Engineering Excellence Awards competition.
