If you’re headed to the Jersey Shore this weekend via the Garden State Parkway expect some delays from the Toms River exits (82) through the Manahawkin/Long Beach Island exit (63) ending just before the Little Egg Harbor/Tuckerton exit.
Though crews won’t be working over the holiday weekend, the Parkway’s widening has caused lane shifts which always cause problems, and those not familiar with the work seem inclined to slow down and check it out!
Hopefully, the 2011 summer season won’t be plagued with these problems, at least not in the same areas. Widening the Parkway between Exits 82 and 63 should be completed, but will start up further south.
If you’d like to check out the traffic before you leave north Jersey for the Jersey Shore, the NJ Turnpike Authority has made available to the public more vantage points, 79 live camera shots from the Turnpike and 70 live camera shots on the Parkway!
