The New Jersey Turnpike Authority announced that it has closed the Garden State Parkway to traffic in both directions from Exit 38 at the Atlantic City Expressway to the toll road’s southern terminus in Cape May County.
The decision to close this approximately 35-mile section of the Parkway was made about 10 a.m. due to flooding in several locations. It will remain closed until further notice.
Motorists are advised that they should expect additional significant closures on both the Parkway and Turnpike in the coming hours as conditions continue to deteriorate.
All unnecessary travel should be avoided, but motorists who absolutely must travel should check www.511nj.org for up-to-the-minute information on travel conditions and road closures.
