CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE - Crest Haven Road southbound off the Garden State Parkway was closed Tuesday, June 3, as state crews set beams in preparation for an overpass.

One of three lanes was closed to accommodate the work, and traffic slowed to watch as the huge beams were set into place.

In April, Tom Feeney, spokesman for the New Jersey Turnpike Authority said the project to remove traffic lights at three intersections is till on target to be completed before the end of April 2015.

Work on the two-year project began in early 2013. As of March 7, 2014, Feeney said, the project was about 25 percent completed.

“The project is on schedule to be completed in November 2015,” Feeney said earlier this year.

The project will replace the traffic signals at three intersections with full interchanges, Feeney said. Bridges will be built to carry Parkway traffic over Shell Bay Avenue, Stone Harbor Boulevard and Crest Haven Road.

On and off ramps are planned at all three interchanges.

Feeney said the overpasses would likely be finished by the end of the year.

“The work is going fine and the scope is unchanged,” Feeney said.
