It looks like the weather yesterday may have made 4th of July weekend visitors adjust their plans a little bit. The traffic that we'd usually expect the night before, this time around on Thursday, was rolling down the Parkway in full force this afternoon.

Now, when I was coming down the Parkway around 2pm there wasn't a huge backup, but there were definitely pockets of heavy volume like you see in the picture above (between the Toms River toll and exit 82).

Of course there are a few ways to deal with the traffic that always comes with holidays like this weekend - use an alternate route (but don't tell too many people or your secret way won't be much of a secret for very long), or bring along a bit of patience.

Of course we'll keep you up to date with the latest Ocean County traffic all weekend long. so keep it on 92.7 WOBM for the whole 4th of July weekend!
