Southbound lane closures near GSP’s Raritan Toll Plaza likely to cause weekend delays

    Repairs south of the Garden State Parkway’s Raritan Toll Plaza are likely to cause delays this weekend, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority announced.

    The closure of the E-Z Pass express lanes from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday is required to accommodate repairs to the deck of a southbound bridge over an abandoned railroad crossing just south of the plaza, officials said.

    Officials suggest that anyone heading to the shore or other points south of the Raritan tolls “should consider alternate routes as there could be significant delays.”

    The work is weather dependent and could be postponed if rain is in the forecast. If the work is postponed, an announcement will be posted on the Turnpike Authority website by 5 p.m. Friday.
