-- Stay to the left and follow signs for Route 139 West, then to Route 1&9 Truck southbound toward Newark, Route 7 and I-280.

Local Traffic for Jersey City

-- Stay to the middle to take Route 139 Upper Roadway and follow signs to Kennedy Boulevard/Jersey City, to best access many local Jersey City locations and other points north.
