Despite an electronic sign that has been on the Garden State Parkway at Exit 81 in Toms River all week, officials are saying that the message is inaccurate.

The sign that has been on the shoulder of the road right before the exit as recently as Friday afternoon, says that the Exit 81 ramp will be closed from 6 p.m. on Friday until 6 a.m. on Saturday.

However, when our colleagues in our traffic department reached out to Garden State Parkway officials, we were told that the ramp will not be closing tonight, and that the work there won't begin until at least the middle of the month.

We'll of course keep an eye on it and let you know as soon as we hear what's going on there.
