Snowstorm Forces Travel Restrictions on the Turnpike and the Parkway

The speed limit is 35 miles an hour on the New Jersey Turnpike and 45 miles an hour on the Garden State Parkway.

The first snowstorm of 2014 has slowed traffic on both the New Jersey Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway.

There is currently a speed restriction in place on the New Jersey Turnpike in both directions between the Delaware Memorial Bridge in Pennsville and the area just north of Exit 12 in Linden, according to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s website. The speed limit is 35 miles an hour due to road conditions. The speed limit has been reduced to 45 miles an hour between Exit 12 in Linden and the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee.

The speed restriction on the Garden State Parkway is also in place in both directions. Traffic is slowed to 45 miles an hour between Southern Terminus/Route 109 in Cape May and the New York State Line in Montvale, according to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s website. This restriction is in place due to salting and plowing.

@Rachel - Wow, they had power ? or did they have generators giving them power?
Rachel Tomasi January 03, 2014 at 07:33 AM
I BELIEVE they had full power as the gas pumps were working and all even when they ran out and got more delivered along with Exxon etc. To the best of my memory and understanding then and being my brain was frozen. It was well fully lit and all. Generators usually keep SOME but not all power on but like u said I can't swear. The four seasons diner had a generator with which they generously let us charge phones, iPads, nook and kindles to keep us somewhat informed inasmuch as we could get any 3G service but for books n things downloaded to do offline once home and their wifi was up for while there. Even so we knew it was a generator and only half to two thirds of their outlets worked. So that wawa I am fairly certain was just one of the lucky ones not to lose their power...as they were open n busy the very morning after the storm.
