Got questions on the Garden State Parkway's ongoing three-lane expansion between Toms River and Atlantic County?
Those with questions about the project to expand the Garden State Parkway will have those questions answered on Aug. 4 when the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey hosts a public information center.
The center will take place in the Campus Center, and is an informal event that will take place between 4 and 7 p.m. Representatives of the Turnpike Authority will be on hand to answer questions about the widening program, including upcoming construction work and the clearing of brush and trees in the right-of-way, which was recently completed.
They will be positioned around the room with charts, pictures and displays. They will meet with individuals and small groups, and will discuss the preparations and work for the second phase of the project.
The first phase of the project, which is taking place between mile markers 30 and 80 in Atlantic, Burlington and Ocean counties, was recently completed. A third lane was added in each direction between mile markers 63 and 80 in The second phase begins this fall.
The necessary permits from the state and federal agencies were already acquired, in November of 2008.
