That I was aware of. Doesn't surprise me, the Cape May County Bridge Commission bridges that are still open (and charge a toll), aren't in the best of shape either. For example, the Middle Thorofare Bridge a closed to fire trucks to cross it due to weight limits and a 5 out of 100 sufficiently rating.... and they are still thinking of spending money on Beesleys Point? Just permanently re-route US-9 over the GSP already.

I honestly think that the parkway should be signed as Alt US-9 for most of its length, it pretty much acts as the express version of the road. The egg harbor bridge will need to be widened before there is a permament routing of US-9 over it anyway, due to increased traffic that it cannot fully handle nowadays.
