After decades of controversy, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority is preparing to remove the infamous lights, making the Parkway a true limited-access, free-flowing highway. The environmental impact study has just been approved, and the bidding process is expected to begin in the fall, setting the stage for a two-year construction project starting next year. Three overpasses will be built as part of the $125 million project.

Garden State Light Removal has Started
- The project will replace the traffic signals at three at-grade intersections with full interchanges. Bridges will be built to carry the Parkway over Shell Bay Avenue (Interchange 9), Stone Harbor Boulevard (Interchange 10) and Crest Haven Road (Interchange 11). Ramps will provide continued full access between the Parkway and the local roads at all three interchanges. Drivers on the Garden State Parkway will no longer have to stop to let local traffic pass, and drivers on the local roads will no longer have to wait at a busy intersection to get to the other side of the Parkway
- The construction work is expected to take about two years. Officials say during that time the Garden State Parkway will maintain full capacity. One of the first phases of the project involve building a diversionary road that will carry traffic while the overpasses are being constructed. The total price tag is $110 million.
