The same year that the Stickel Bridge opened, the New Jersey State Highway Department proposed the Essex Freeway, an east-west road stretching from the proposed New Jersey Turnpike in Hudson County to US 46 in Morris County.In 1954, one year after the highway was re-christened NJ 58, an approach stretching one-half to the west of the lift span was opened to traffic.These initial sections of NJ 58 formed part of the new Essex Freeway, which was to continue west through Newark into the area of Parsippany.Most of the new route was to parallel NJ 10, a congested, two-lane radial route.Engineers first cut through First Mountain, and had approximately 1.5 million cubic yards of rock ready to haul to a replacement fill toward the western end of I-280, where a separate section was being graded over unstable land.

During the design stage in the late 1950s, state highway officials decided upon a longer, less costly route for I-280 rather than constructing a vehicular land tunnel through First Mountain.

In 1967, the NJDOT presented two alternative I-280 corridors through Harrison.

The "blue" corridor through Harrison was shorter, but would have displaced 650 families.

The New Jersey State Highway Department decided ultimately to construct the longer, less costly route.

To hold down construction costs, the state commissioned the engineering firm S. Groves and Sons to construct a temporary railroad along the I-280 right-of-way.
