Parkway light removal project to start soon

Posted: Updated:

The long road for the removal of traffic lights on the Garden State Parkway will soon come to an end.  The New Jersey Turnpike Authority has awarded a contract for the project to a Salem County-based company.  Officials with the Authority say it will take ten business days before the contract becomes official, and once it does, work should begin in a couple of weeks.

 Officials say the first phase of the project will be to build a temporary roadway along side the Parkway to handle traffic.

 The project is expected to take about 2 years to complete.  The contract awarded is for $71.7 million; officials say that's 30 million below the state's estimate.
