The End of Another Weekend Means More People Heading Away From Jersey Shore
Traffic complaints at a minimum on Sunday afternoon
For those people who made their way to the Jersey Shore in the monsoon that was Friday's drenching rain storm, driving back on Sunday afternoon should be a considerably nicer experience.
As of 3:30 there were only a few complaints about traffic on the local and major roadways according to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority. Up north there is a two mile delay on the Garden State Parkway on the southbound side near exit 109. That delay stretches as far down as exit 105. In that same area, there are reported delays on Route 36 North between Atlantic Avenue in Long Branch and Navesink Avenue in the Highlands.
There are also some delays on the Turnpike this afternoon. On the northbound side near exit 7 there is a 12 mile delay reaching exit 8. The 12 mile backup is causing delays of 20 to 25 minutes for motorists driving in that direction. Also on the Turnpike, there is a delay on the southbound side of the road near exit 8A. The delays reach all the way to the Molly Pitcher Service area.
