Garden State Parkway Opens New $130 Million Bridge

The Press of Atlantic City reports, “After three years of construction, the new southbound Garden State Parkway bridge over the Great Egg Harbor opened to traffic Wednesday [August 31]. The two-lane, $130-million bridge towers over the old span connecting Somers Point in Atlantic County and Upper Township in Cape May County.” The article adds, “While vehicle lanes are open, access to the new multi-use walkway remains closed. The project, which is slated to be complete in October, will include a rare opportunity for pedestrians and bicyclists to walk or ride on the Garden State Parkway. . . .”
