It's an annoyance to be driving through constant Parkway construction in Ocean County, but it's definitely nice when we get to see and use the results of all of those delays and lane closures. This week, Exit 89 in Brick/Lakewood is open for business.
When you drive the same way to and from work every day you start to learn the idiosyncrasies of the area. And, if you're like me, you get to know the general timing of the traffic lights, too. Until, of course, they change them.
We've talked before about how the construction on The Garden State Parkway is causing commuter headaches for Ocean County residents and workers. Just when I thought that the closures, lane changes, and shifts couldn't get more confusing, I hopped on at exit 90 last week.
