Very little traffic reported on major highways
Another weekend on the Jersey Shore is winding down, and as of 5:30 on Sunday night it looks like most people are getting to their destinations without too many problems. The New Jersey Turnpike Authority is reporting no issues on the Garden State Parkway through most of the region, reaching all the way to the Hudson River crossings. The only major issue on the New Jersey Turnpike even near the area is on the northbound side near Exit 7A. The problems extend from Route 195 in Robbinsville all the way to Exit 8 in East Windsor. Even with the volume the delays should only be around 10 minutes.

Traffic is light as temperatures dip slightly
With temperatures crossing into triple digits all through the area today this should be a busy weekend on the Jersey Shore. However, as of 7:40 Friday night, there is very little traffic to report on the local roadways. The New Jersey Turnpike Authority reports that there are very few problems on both the Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway, except for at the Hudson River Crossings. In Berkeley Township, a downed pole and downed wires is making for difficult driving conditions on Route 9. On the northbound side between Korman Road and Ocean Gate Drive all lanes are closed which is making for heavy delays in the area. Check back with Patch.com on Sunday for an update on traffic leaving the Jersey Shore.

Traffic looks light as weekend rush to the area gets under way.
If you find yourself stuck in traffic this weekend and grumbling about how it takes longer than you would like to get from point "A" to point "B", just remember it can always be worse. According to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, as of 3:45 on Friday afternoon there were no reported delays in the area, but there are problems other places in the state. The New Jersey Turnpike has reported delays on exit 8A that stretches for two miles due to heavy volume. Also on the Turnpike, there is a five mile delay on the southbound side near Exit 7A.

First weekend after Memorial Day starting off quietly
At 3:30 on Friday afternoon the official start to the weekend is just over an hour away. With a little bit of time to go the traffic is still light heading into the Jersey Shore area, but there are plenty of cars on the road in North Jersey. According to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority the biggest traffic issues in the area are starting around Route 9 in Old Bridge and Sayreville with a high volume of traffic already in the area. There is also a report of an accident on the Parkway southbound near Exit 98 which is blocking the left lane. If the traffic building in the northern part of the state starts its expected migration south it should make for some headaches on the local roads but for right now it looks like smooth sailing on the…

Local police enforcing traffic laws at major shopping centers.
State officials were reporting no major traffic incidents in the local area as of 3:00pm, but there were a few slow spots motorists were dealing with. Northbound lanes of the Garden State Parkway were moving slowly between exits 58 and 67 due to the ongoing lane-widening project through most of Ocean County. A southbound delay stretches from just south of exit 80 to exit 63. Construction has been halted through Sunday, said Joe Orlando of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, but barricades, equipment and a reduced speed limit remain in place. In North Jersey, traffic crawled in both directions of Route 46 in Roxbury. The eastbound lanes of Route 4 were delayed between River Rd. and Teaneck Rd. There was also a two-way jam on Route 18 in East…
