Additional 66 Miles of Garden State Parkway to Close in Anticipation of Hurricane Sandy Impact

Trenton, NJ – The New Jersey Turnpike Authority will close the Garden State Parkway in both directions south of Interchange 129 in Woodbridge Township as of 4 p.m. Monday.

The southern portion of the Parkway, from Cape May to Interchange 63 in Stafford Township, has been closed since early this afternoon. The additional 66 miles are being closed because of deteriorating conditions caused by Hurricane Sandy.

On the New Jersey Turnpike, the speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph in both directions between the Delaware Memorial Bridge and Interchange 12 in Carteret. Motorcycles and car-pulled trailers have been banned on the full-length of the Turnpike. 

Drivers should expect other significant closures and travel restrictions as the storm progresses.

All unnecessary travel should be avoided, but drivers who must travel should check for up-to-the-minute information on travel conditions and road closures.
