Tolls Suspended on Garden State Parkway North

Governor's office announces toll suspension beginning at 6 a.m. on Sunday.

The Office of Gov. Chris Christie announced the suspension of tolls on the northbound Garden State Parkway and the westbound Atlantic City Expressway beginning at 6 a.m on Sunday.

The decision was made to facilitate travel for those leaving coastal areas of New Jersey in advance of Hurricane Sandy, according to a press release.

Tolls will be suspended until further notice on the northbound Garden State Parkway from Cape May to the Driscoll Bridge and on the full length of the westbound Atlantic City Expressway, the release stated.

For updates on travel conditions on state roads during the storm, motorists are encouraged to call 511 or visit 511nj.org.

Half the time, there is no one there to take the tolls anyway! They raise the tolls, and then lay off the workers....

If you don't have exact change, and you want to get on at Route 70 (exit 88), and you also don't have "easy pass", you're most likely getting a ticket. I almost NEVER see a live toll collector there. I notice, because I'm one of those guys who gets a receipt every time.
