OLD BRIDGE - Nice weather is predicted for most of the Labor Day holiday weekend in New Jersey, as people celebrate the final weekend of the summer tourism season.

AAA Mid-Atlantic projects more than 1 million New Jerseyans plan to travel 50 miles or more from home this weekend. That's up 1 percent from last year.

The average gasoline price in New Jersey is $3.26 a gallon for regular, down from $3.51 last Labor Day.

Construction is suspended along the Garden State Parkway, and on the George Washington and Bayonne bridges.

The Port Authority projects more than 2.5 million travelers will cross its bridges and tunnels throughout the weekend.

NJ Transit is offering extra trains out of New York City on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast, Raritan Valley, Morris & Essex and Port Jervis lines starting at 1 p.m. Friday.

Extra buses will leave the Port Authority Bus Terminal on more than a dozen routes starting at noon.

For the return on Monday, NJ Transit trains will operate on a weekend, major holiday schedule.
