The turnpike splits into two separate sets of lanes, the express lanes and the local lanes. The express lanes provide access to only the most major exits, while the local lanes provide access to all exits. This lane configuration only exists on the turnpike from here to the beginning of I-80, which also has express and local lanes. Exit 72B is for US 1/US 9/US 46. Exit 72A is for NJ 4 west.

The turnpike splits into two separate roadways, known as the eastern spur and the western spur, which merge back together a few miles south of here. The signage here does not explain what is happening but simply instructs motorists which way to go for the upcoming exits. For the eastern spur, bear right from the express lanes or bear left from the local lanes. For the western spur, bear left from the express lanes or bear right from the local lanes. Motorists wishing to access exit 17, exit 15X, or the Vince Lombardi Service Area must use the eastern spur. Motorists wishing to access exit 16W must use the western spur. Motorists with a destination further south may use either spur.
