The cars were all going south on Friday as we headed into the final holiday weekend of summer 2019.

It's the opposite today, with weekenders flocking to the Garden State Parkway north to head back home.

As of this writing, the most congestion is northbound through Toms River and Brick, with estimates from live traffic app Waze putting the pace under 20 miles per hour:

So, basically, if you have to get around Ocean County this afternoon and evening, avoid the Parkway, which is sure to get worse before it gets better.

Of course, you can stay with 92.7 WOBM, the free WOBM app, and for the latest Auto Lenders Ocean County Traffic Watch reports throughout the Labor Day Monday rush.
