Ocean County's 9th District state lawmakers say they're more optimistic than ever that a commuter lot will be built off Garden State Parkway exit 58.

Senator Chris Connors says a recent meeting held with officials in the New Jersey Turnpike Authority along with officials in state, county and local governments was productive. Connors says they were advised that the Authority's Engineers will conduct and expedited review of the commuter lot proposal so that future deliberatons will focus more on specific aspects of the project.
