WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (AP) — Four construction firms have been awarded contracts
to widen lanes on stretch of the Garden State Parkway starting in October.
The New Jersey Turnpike Authority approved the contracts totaling $330
million on Tuesday.
The firms will widen lanes and restore shoulders in the stretch between Wall
and Toms River in a project expected to take three years.
Authorities tell the Asbury Park Press that the work
will allow the speed limit in the area to be increased to 65 mph.
