Sound Off, How Do You Rate Driving the Garden State Parkway this Summer in New Jersey?
Summertime in New Jersey and whether you live here in the Garden State or you are visiting from out of state, if you come to Jersey in the summer you will have to drive the Garden State Parkway.
Millions take to the Parkway during the summer and it can be busy as we all know. I will be honest and say so far this summer I have not seen crazy traffic on the Garden State Parkway. This can be good for your commuting, but could it mean fewer vacationers are visiting New Jersey this summer?
We wanted to see how you at home are feeling when it comes to travel on one of the state's busiest roadways, the Garden State Parkway? Let's give the GSP a "mid-summer" report card and see how you grade the roadway. Take a quick moment to click your choice and give the Parkway your grade.
It still seems that the two most challenging times during the week, during summer, on the Garden State Parkway continue to be Friday nights with visitors coming to Jersey for the weekend and Sunday afternoons with drivers heading back home.
My grade for the Garden State Parkway for the summer of 2022 is a B-. Do you think I'm being too generous or do you agree? I just find traffic to be moving pretty good even on those hard-to-drive times. EZ has made tolls much easier to flow through and construction seems, for the most part, to occur during off-peak hours. All of these factors for me are why I'll go with a B-.
Thanks for taking part in our survey and we'll discuss this on The Morning Show with Shawn & Sue.
