Garden State Parkway Closing From Exit 129 to Southern Terminus

New Jersey Turnpike speed reduced to 45 mph between Interchange 12 and Delaware Memorial Bridge.

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) announced the Garden State Parkway closure will be extended to Exit 129 by 4 p.m. on Monday.

The NJTA closed the Parkway in both directions from Exit 63 through the southern terminus at noon. The decision to extend the closure through Exit 129 in Woodbridge was made because of the deteriorating weather conditions in advance of Hurricane Sandy, according to a press release issued by Gov. Chris Christie's office.

On the New Jersey Turnpike, the speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph in both directions between the Delaware Memorial Bridge and Interchange 12 in Carteret. Motorcycles and car-pulled trailers have been banned on the full-length of the Turnpike.

Drivers should expect other significant closures and travel restrictions as the storm progresses.

All unnecessary travel should be avoided, but drivers who must travel should check 511nj.org for information on travel conditions and road closures.

Is 129 closed?

At his 5:30 p.m. press conference Gov. Christie said not every exit is blocked off by a truck, but that doesn't mean the Parkway isn't closed. It's closed from Exit 129 to the southbound terminus. Cars are not supposed to be on that section of the Parkway at this point.
Rachel Leigh October 29, 2012 at 11:22 PM
Yes, but from exit 129 could mean that exit 129 is not closed but everything beyond that point is. That is what I need to clarify. I need to get on the NJT from 129 tomorrow and I'm wonderig if that exact exit is open. Thanks in advance
