Motorists in Cape May County will soon be able to travel the Garden State Parkway without a single red light.
Officials from the New Jersey Turnpike Authority broke ground Monday on a $110 million project that will remove the parkway's only three traffic lights.
The project will also build bridges to carry the parkway over local streets at interchanges 9, 10 and 11.
Officials say they hope this project will reduce congestion along that particular stretch of the parkway and improve traffic safety in the area.
A blustery and chilly start to Memorial Day weekend! It stays windy tonight but clouds slowly clear out as low pressure towards our north departs.
We will see much more sunshine Sunday with a little less wind and warmer high temperatures around 70 degrees.
Back to normal by Memorial Day with high temps in the mid 70s -- it will be a beautiful holiday!
