If there's one sure sign of the end of a holiday weekend in Ocean County, it's the bumper to bumper traffic on the Garden State Parkway.

As the summer and weekend visitors head home, and we get ready to reclaim our beaches, the variety of license plates going northbound - New York, Connecticut, and of course New Jersey as well, are a sign that pretty soon we'll have the beaches and boardwalks all to ourselves.

Stay with us all afternoon, we'll have full Ocean County Traffic Watch updates to get you around the congestion and help you navigate the last hurrah of Summer, 2014!
