JERSEY CITY - Two Jersey City parks have reopened after crews cleaned up lead paint chips that were found.
Mary Benson Park and Enos Jones Park were closed after the paint chips were discovered. Both parks sit under the New Jersey Turnpike extension, which was undergoing construction.
Cleanup crews came out to vacuum up all the paint and make sure the parks were no longer contaminated.
The Turnpike Authority is putting a tarp over the extension and will repaint the bridge to prevent further lead paint contamination.
