Per the article, tolls will be 2.02 for E-ZPass and 2.10 for cars at the two way tolls.

You meant the 1 way tolls.

Yep, that's what I meant. The one way tolls will be half that 1.01/1.05.

You have that backwards. So to clarify for the people reading: All of the one-way toll plazas will be $2.02/$2.10 because essentially the next plaza is free. The only two-way toll plaza in Toms River will be half that.

Very interesting article.

One interesting tid bit not covered in it was that The Parkway was built as a glare free headlight roadway.  In Union County from Clark to Union a dirt pile held together with grass was in the median before the 1980 129-140 road widening leveled it to form a fourth lane. In addition the area through Irvington and East Orange had a center guard rail that was kind off odd looking just to block out headlights from oncoming traffic. The center rail was four feet high with vertical bars connecting a lower to upper beam to achieve the headlight block.

The rest had a wide median to prevent glare as so it does today in many areas.

Great article with lots of tidbits I hadnít known about. Not sure how Iíd feel about having a rest area named after me.

I bet ole Jon Bon Jovi is happy that Cheesequake is his namesake. Donít know his ego, but he strikes me as the egotistical type.

Then again I donít believe in naming things after the living.

So many upside down traffic lights.  :-D

Had this area previously been widened in the lengthier widening project?

That would be a nope. The US-9 Toms River Bypass remained mostly untouched since NJDOT built it.

Areas immediately to the north and south were part of longer (and recent) widening projects, but this section was not included in either program.

The lack of changing the 82/82A combination (its been removed elsewhere), plus their skipping this section previously, suggested they had a pretty decent project in the works.

Finally 80-83 will be full interchanges plus the tight cloverleaf at 82 will be made with more radius to its ramps.

I wish they would make 82 a diamond as cloverleaf interchanges are out like 8 track tapes.

Except in NJ, where they are still the base model.
