EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – The proposed Garden State Parkway widening project is set to begin by late summer, according to John T. Whithers, supervising engineer for the New Jersey Turnpike Authority. Whithers and other officials were on hand in the Egg Harbor Township Community Center on Wednesday, April 9 to explain the design plans to the public.
The project will widen the northbound and southbound lanes of the roadway from milepost 35 to 38. Other improvements include new overhead guide signs, ramp lighting, and guide rails. The construction is an effort to reduce congestion and crashes in this area, Whithers said.
