Traffic patterns to change at Asbury Park toll plaza on the Garden State Parkway

Drivers who use the Garden State Parkway should get ready for some changes in the traffic patterns.

At the Asbury Park toll plaza, the middle southbound lanes are closed. The three lanes of the southbound express traffic are rerouted to the local lanes. The local lanes are directed to the right where the tollbooths have been taken down.

The lane changes are only temporary while construction crews continue to take down the toll plaza. Many drivers say the temporary shifts were not a problem. The DOT commissioner says he wants to thank drivers for their patience during the construction.

The DOT commissioner says work on the southbound side should be complete sometime in November. Though the southbound tolls will be taken down, drivers will have to pay double when they travel north.
